Financial Literacy: What’s the Buzz?

What is a basis point, and what does it have to do with changes in interest rates? Should your savings be put into Kiwi Saver or into paying off a house mortgage? Should you be worried about the recent collapse of so many finance companies over the past 18 months? What is an exchange rate and why does the New Zealand Exchange Rate change so much? Should I sell my Warehouse shares or buy more?
