Countries and their communities are not financial service institutions and do not generally provide personal financial advice. However, they can serve as advocates for their citizens, workers, and politicians (The Community), and thus can encourage them to learn about the essential principles to money so they can make better every day informed money decisions. They can also encourage the members of The Community to get and keep their financial, estate and gift plans current as part of their personal growth and preparation for life and all its challenges.
Countries and their local communities are in a strategic leadership position to materially improve the quality of life of their citizens. This happens through governance, social welfare programs, laws and taxes, defense and protection, advanced healthcare, educational initiatives and through a new powerful life -long learning connection to the people that make up The Community.
