Topic: How Public Policy Impacts Personal Finance

Money is political, but it is. Public policy impacts how we interact with money and the costs we have to bear. Whether it’s limiting how those with designated disabilities can accumulate wealth to the costs that people face when forced to choose between medicine and rent, public policy and politics has an influence over personal finance. We will discuss how financial content creators can use this awareness to have a stronger impact on their audiences.

Register today to attend the event live and receive access to all the material that will be presented at the event and compiled afterward.

Today’s Topics:

⋄ How Disability Policy Keeps People in Poverty
⋄ Generational Poverty in Marginalized Communities
⋄ How Financial Advice Can Address Policy, Not Just Personal Responsibility
