M. Bina recruiting for iOme Challenge on financial literacy
UW-Green Bay Associate Lecturer Michael Bina is once again seeking student volunteers to assemble a Green Bay team for annual the iOme Challenge. It’s a national non-profit effort (iOme is a stylized way to write “I owe me”) to raise awareness about financial security in retirement and its impact on the future social and economic well-being of American society. The winning team earns a cash award and an invitation to Washington, D.C. to present its entry to various policymakers. This year’s hypothetical challenge involves a commission to write a policy advisory paper and prepare a video addressing the preparedness of states for the future retirement challenges of the Millennial generation. The assignment also calls for development of a system for ranking the 50 states, from those most to least prepared to handle the retirement of the Millennial Generation retiring as early as 2040.
