Ellen Roseman is a Toronto Star Columnist, an author and educator. Her latest book Fight Back: 81 Ways To Save Money & Protect Yourself From Corporate Trickery is a “greatest hits” from her personal advice column and contains quick tips that all Canadians can use to help them spend sensibly, save money, and avoid costly consumer traps.

Ellen is currently teaching (and has been for the last 10 years) a personal finance basics course at University of Toronto’s school of continuing studies. This is rather fitting as she literally wrote the books Money 101 & Money 201.

10 - Financial Literacy Starts with Being Suspicious - Ellen Roseman

Play
Read more

On today's show, Ellen Roseman, a Toronto Star columnist and consumer advocate, explains that we tend to get financial advice from people with a vested interest, like car salesmen and bankers.  They all have "skin in the game", so consumers need to find someone who can give them unbiased advice.

Ms. Roseman suggests reading financial blogs (and particularly the comments) and using Google to research everything before you buy.

To improve your financial literacy: be suspicious.  Ask questions, and never say "yes" right away. Always consider the downside before you commit.

All that and more on today's show.
