What Is Financial Literacy and Why Is It Important? (Video)

On this episode of Liberty Curious, Robert Wright, historian and Senior Research Faculty at AIER, joins Kate Wand to discuss his new book: Fearless: Wilma Soss and America’s Forgotten Investor Movement.

Robert shares details of Wilma Soss’s remarkable story as a self-made woman, journalist, PR pioneer, and activist who devoted her life to reforming corporate America. In the post-World War Two era, with the Great Depression in the poast, Soss changed from a stock market skeptic to a tireless shareholder advocate, working from within to change corporations to serve shareholders better. A staunch supporter of free markets and economic freedom, Wilma believed that the private sector was the best way to achieve personal wealth, well-being, liberty, and the ultimate defense against collectivism.
