This is a special that everyone needs to watch:
America is going through a financial crisis not seen in a generation — and a torrent of information about stocks, treasuries, bankruptcies, derivatives, confusing credit card and mortgage rates makes you feel like you need an MBA to open the newspaper.
But do you ever wish somebody would just explain the everyday stuff — the basic “smarts” of dealing with money? ABC News financial contributor Mellody Hobson has teamed up with an all-star cast of celebrities for a one-hour special to air Friday to do just that.
Watch Mellody Hobson’s special UN-BROKE: What You Need to Know About Money. Friday 9 p.m. Eastern.
