Americans are bad at math says the NYTimes

We have heard it before, that Americans or people who live in the USA are not the best at math. That is on the whole of the population.

I found this online at a newspaper site I  like to read.  By the way I  subscribe and get the NYTimes on my wife’s iPad.

The napkin sketch guy Carl Richards  has a nice one americans are bad at math but its not too late to fix

A pdf of this article (nytimes.com-Americans_Are_Bad_at_Math_but_Its_Not_Too_Late_to_Fix_2014_08_04   (right click to open in a new tab )

Take a look at this article and if you have young people in your life keep working with them so they are not a part of the problem.

And a great Idea for young people and old is to start a Roth IRA. The younger you start,  the more power this account will have in a persons finical life.
