How much do YOU know about Money?!

A recent article I read inquires "Who knows the most about money?" When that question is asked, who's the first person you think of? My first thought was Bill Gates, the richest man in the world. He has the most, so he must be top of the list! Nope, according to a survey Forbes conducted, he was on the top 10, but not most knowledgable about money. Forbes editors and reporters chose two dozen candidates for the survey. The people they chose ranged from hedge fund managers to celebrity musicians. Once they had their list, over 4,000 Forbes.com readers, and senior editors made their pick. So who do 44% of Forbes.com readers think knows the most about money? This person filed their first income tax return at the age of 13, and claimed a $35 deductible for his bicycle! Wow, and I thought I was cool because I was getting 15 bucks a week allowence. So place your bets and check out the article to find out who knows the most about money.
