In this thesis, I will explore beneficial financial literacy standards that should be applied to Generation Y students and will attempt to explain why all of them are truly vital for financial survival or overall well-being in this new Millennium. Through this commentary, I will develop a pyramid containing six fundamental rules that will assist with one’s financial future. Thirdly, I will create a basic website that will act as a technological module to help with the overall education of the site’s viewers; on it, there will be the six rules formatted as a pyramid and a compilation of resources to help the viewer out with basic finance. Through all of these parts, it is my hope that I help facilitate and create the desire within an individual to learn all that they can in order to help their future and prevent minor financial mishaps.
