There has been increased interest by many countries in developing the financial literacy of their citizens. These efforts have been propelled in part by the need to increase individual financial responsibility as a consequence of the global economic crisis, technological innovations in financial markets, and the changing nature of financial products. The World Bank and other international institutions are in the vanguard of a campaign for improving financial literacy worldwide. Some countries have responded positively, instituting varied financial and economic education programs. Using interviews, website content analysis, and secondary sources, this paper examines recent efforts in developing financial literacy for selected Caribbean countries; highlights their delivery methods; and pinpoints the role of the international, regional, and national organizations in increasing the financial literacy of citizens in these countries.
