To honor Financial Literacy Month in April 2012, Visa released a survey of international financial literacy
that tallied answers from more than 25,000 participants in 28 countries. Respondents were asked five questions relating to money management, and received an overall score based on a 0 to 100 scale. The survey revealed that Brazil topped the chart as the most financially literate country, with a score of 50.4 out of 100.
If financial literacy were an Olympic event, no one would be shouting “USA!” as Americans got shut out of the medal round, finishing fourth with a score of 44.6.To use this CreditCards.com graphic on your site, use the following code:
