Anderson, with fellow professors Maria Edlin King and Charles Baum, helped to organize Financial Literacy Week activities at MTSU.

The events include lectures and panel discussions by experienced financial planners, scholarship opportunities and an interactive game to challenge students’ ability to adjust their budgets when they encounter major life changes.

Personal money management is not only a major issue with millennials; Anderson said society at large could stand to learn a lot more about how to save, spend, invest, balance bank accounts and plan for the future.

“We saw many people (who) were sent home from work. … That was a quick reminder of the importance of savings, and especially emergency savings, because you never know what’s coming around the corner.”
