16 Prestigious Schools that Offer Free Online Classes posted by admin on November 5th, 2008 The world of education is changing, big time.

This course is not intended to replace the professional financial planner, but to help to make the general public better consumers of financial planning advice.

BREAKING: You Know That TED Talk You Weren't Supposed To See? Here It Is. Presented in partnership with Nick Hanauer, self described "super-rich" entrepreneur, gave a fantastic TED Talk about how the middle class—not the super-rich—are the real job creators.

We normally love TED, and were surprised they didn't think this talk was TEDworthy. Under pressure from the internets, TED finally relented and released the video.
