The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, Dartmouth College and Rand Corp. have teamed up to launch a new Financial Literacy Center on the Internet.

The site aims to bring together policymakers, practitioners and researchers who are committed to improving financial literacy. The center's mission is to develop and test innovative programs to improve financial literacy and promote informed financial decision-making. The center is also generating creative educational materials designed for different segments of the population, especially those with low to moderate incomes, young employees, women of all ages, people with disabilities, and people who are approaching retirement or have already retired.

The site will be adding multimedia features such as videos, video games and interactive Web tools. For more information, visit
