TheMoneyShelf.com Helps Consumers Self-Educate on Both Personal Finance Issues and Everyday Economics

“TheMoneyShelf.com is designed to help people increase their independence and prosperity through self-education,”said TheMoneyShelf.com founder and president, Dexter L. Jasper.

Financial literacy is a vitally important skill for achieving success, yet one that is rarely taught in school. It is perhaps no wonder then than more than 75% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, without enough money saved up in case of an emergency like a job loss or medical problem. In fact, 27% report having no savings at all. A new online bookseller has launched whose mission is to amend this gap. TheMoneyShelf.com offers a curated collection of vitally important books designed to educate consumers of all ages on both the broader and the finer points of managing money. TheMoneyShelf.com always offers free shipping to the 48 contiguous states on orders over $25.

“TheMoneyShelf.com is designed to help people increase their independence and prosperity through self-education,” said TheMoneyShelf.com founder and president, Dexter L. Jasper. “Needless to say, the individuals that figure it out sooner tend to make better financial decisions and gain important progress earlier in life. The pressure of finance and economics weighs heavily on our shoulders and that weight tends to increase with time and responsibility; therefore, it is essential we strengthen ourselves or risk being handicapped for life.”

The site is organized into broad categories such as Budgeting; Real Estate Investment; Building Wealth;
Retirement Planning; and Economics. Each category includes dozens of books hand-selected by a team of financial experts to help make TheMoneyShelf.com a go-to resource for anyone looking to understand more about all money matters. The site is a platform for focused information, expert advice and an exchange of ideas among like-minded individuals. Notable partnerships and affiliations for TheMoneyShelf include AmericaSaves.org, Consumer Federation of America, and Ingram Book Group, Inc.

“Financial education supports not only individual well-being, but also the economic health of our nation,” said Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke in a 2012 speech. “Consumers who can make informed decisions about financial products and services not only serve their own best interests, but collectively, they also help promote broader economic stability.”
