Are You as Financially Literate as an American Teenager?

The Organization For Economic Cooperation put together a survey and assessed the financial literacy of 15-year-old across the globe. American teens tested in the middle (China placed first, but, hey, we beat Russia and France [just barely]).

The Wall Street Journal put together five sample questions here, which you can try to answer (I got 5/5, thank god, or maybe I’d need to quit and get another job). Basically, if you can read and understand an invoice, pay stub, or bank offer, you’ll do fine.
