Strong dollar: 10 reasons why it matters to you

The greenback is now at a 20-year high against other world currencies, thanks in part to expectations that the Federal Reserve will increase its interest rates faster than most. And here is how, where and why it will impact you most.

All things to all people, the U.S. dollar leaves its imprint in every corner of the global economy: It is the currency in which vital raw materials are bought and sold, and it is the safe haven to which investors turn in times of trouble.

With inflation, gold notes and cards find their way into America's wallet

A group of Americans are increasingly turning to gold as an alternative currency as unprecedented government spending and Federal Reserve easing threatens to further erode the value of the greenback.

The dollar has lost 86% of its purchasing power since 1971, according to U.S. government data, when President Richard Nixon ended the fixed convertibility of dollars to gold. Gold prices, meanwhile, have jumped from around $40 per ounce to $1,900 during this time.

With inflation running at its highest levels in four decades, Utah business owner Steve Allred is concerned about the declining purchasing power of the U.S. dollar.

'Launching Financial Grownups' shows how to raise money-smart kids

There are a few reasons why launching our kids into the real world is so challenging. Often adults do not have their own financial house in order, so we lack the knowledge or tools to teach the next generation.

In addition, the last thing any teenager wants to do is patiently listen to, and learn from, parents.

And schools are not a big help, either. Money skills are now part of some curriculums, but the reality is personal finance often gets overlooked as a subject.

When it comes to passing money smarts to children, many parents know where to start.

First-time U.S. home buyers feeling 'defeated' by high prices

Spring is the season for tulips, baseball and home sales in the U.S.

But as home prices soar, housing affordability is sinking to the lowest levels since 2008 and first-time buyers - who haven't benefited from rising home values and are also coping with rising rents - are being squeezed out.

First-time buyers accounted for 27% of existing home sales in January, according to the National Association of REALTORS®, near 2014 levels. With mortgage rates above 4%, around the highest in about three years, and expected to rise further, buyers on tight budgets may struggle even more to find homes they can afford.
