We also connect audience members with professional advice if they wish.
There is a huge need for health, financial and legal information. According to the CDC, obesity rates in the United States doubled between 1980 and 2000, including among children. Today, 30% of us are obese, increasing our risk of multiple chronic and serious illnesses. Fewer than half of us get regular exercise. The savings rate among U.S. households went below 1% in 2008, and has only started to creep back up in 2009 and 2010. More than a million households file for bankruptcy every year. Only about 5% of people retiring have enough savings to maintain their pre-retirement standard of living, and a quarter of new retirees have incomes of less than $15,000 per year.

Financial education is a critical component of a robust and effective financial marketplace because financial literacy leads to better outcomes for individual consumers. Continued effort in this area is highly desirable. - Ben Bernanke, Chair, U.S. Federal Reserve, May 23, 2006, addressing the U.S. Senate Banking Committee
