This website by the Federal Trade Commission provides current consumer information about money and credit, homes and mortgages, health and fitness, jobs, and general personal finance. The audience is adults, and the reading level is relatively low in order to reach the broadest audience. Young people often have little training in fiscal information literacy, so this site is very useful.
