Segment 2: Financial literacy for all
Businessman and social entrepreneur John Hope Bryant has spent much of his career working to eradicate poverty and improve financial literacy in inner city communities. He says a close look at consumers and their financial decisions helps explain why many have become victims of the recession.
Segment 3: Buying green on a deeper level
