Many students, at some point in their lives, will rely on the services of a financial adviser. CFTC.gov has three short videos (2-3 minutes in length) that allow viewers to make decisions on whether or not to invest after hearing a pitch from an investment “pro.”  Ask your students to jot down the key words or phrases used to entice them to invest.  Thanks to WAPO’s Michelle Singletary for highlighting these in recent column.
