We’re not sure what financial wizardry looks like, so it’s a good thing you won’t need any. (Art by Liu Rui.)

One out of every three Americans has no emergency savings, and about 40% of us spend more than we make. How can we get out of the hole? It all starts with financial education.

In this two-part class, we’ll discuss the basic concepts that drive any financial vehicle, enabling you to better understand how money works, make informed decisions about your future, and begin planning your financial independence. We’ll cover simple — but critically important — ideas like compounding interest, the impact of losses and taxes, and the time value of money.

This class has two parts; by signing up, you are committing to attend both sessions.
