Project 90 is a movement to build a 90% financial literacy rate in the United States. We accomplished this with English literacy, now is the time to do it again with financial literacy!
Financial Literacy Standards
Project 90 has a 15-point standard for financial literacy. It's based on existing, real world, practical programs available for mainstream America (the working poor and middle class).
Financial literacy rates will be measured monthly via survey and will be reported quarterly. Together we can reach a financial literacy rate of 90% in America!
1 / Increase in Annual Cash Flow
An individual or household must have an increase in annual cash flow (not necessarily income!).
2 / Practicality
We only consider financial principles and strategies that are actively applied to an individual or household.
3 / Structured and Ordered Strategies
Each individual or household must have a custom designed financial strategy that is structured and ordered, rather than "ad hoc".
4 / Tax Efficiency for Existing Income
An individual's existing income must be taxed in the most efficient manner both legally and ethically.
5 / Bill Overpayment Correction and Prevention
An individual or household must have a manageable way to both correct and prevent overpayment of monthly bills (aka "sudden bill spikes").
6 / Debt Overpayment Correction and Prevention
An individual or household must have a detailed debt payment plan that MINIMIZES any and all interest payments on ALL debts.
7 / Accuracy of Credit Score and Report
An individual must have a credit score and credit report that is accurate and complete.
8 / Proper Business Record Keeping
An individual's business expenses, all of them including "side hustles", must be thoroughly tracked in a way that is manageable and complete, thus remaining IRS compliant.
9 / Regular Tax Professional Consultation
An individual or household must have regular consultation with tax professional(s) to ensure legal and ethical compliance in their finances.
10 / Proper Tax Payment
An individual or household must pay their due taxes on time, accurately, and efficiently (no overpayments).
11 / Multiple Income Streams
An individual or household must have 2 or more streams of income for economic resiliency.
12 / Passive Income
An individual or household must have at least 1 passive stream of income from the private sector (non-government) to prepare for eventual retirement.
13 / Efficient Money Storage
An individual or household must store discretionary (ie "extra") money in an account that (1) appreciates above the inflation rate, (2) appreciates with compound interest, (3) allows for unlimited contributions tax free, (4) allows for unlimited withdrawals tax free, and (5) can be transferred to one's estate tax free.
14 / Low Risk Investment(s)
An individual or household must have 1 or more low risk investment(s) with a yield above inflation.
15 / Medium and High Risk Investment(s)
An individual or household must have 1 or more medium or high risk investment(s) with a yield above inflation. The amount of medium or high risk investment should be carefully measured by the individual or household.
