Angela Marquez runs her fingers over the Braille atlas, reading aloud. "North America," the 10-year-old says, slowly. "South America. Pacific Ocean. " Joan Marason, director of wellness and enrichment programs at Junior Blind of America in Culver City, watches her student and grins broadly. "That's great, Angie!" Marason says. "You're doing such a good job!" Angela nods, shaking her dark braids. "I know," she says. "Can I go get the brailler?" She grabs her cane, feels around the room and lifts the silver machine that resembles a typewriter.

Guess how many Americans correctly answered this basic financial question: Is the stock of a single company usually safer than a mutual fund? A) 100% B) 80% C) 60% D) None of the above. The right answer is D. Barely 1 in 2 people knew that a single stock is not safer than a mutual fund, which holds many stocks. The question, included in a survey by a pair of college professors, underscores a fundamental problem facing millions of Americans. At a time when the world of personal finance is increasingly complex - and when people are more responsible than ever for their own financial future - Americans' understanding of basic concepts is sorely lacking.

General Motors is recalling more than 475,000 of its Chevrolet Cruze autos because of reported engine fires that destroyed two of the vehicles. In March, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened a preliminary investigation into the two fires, both of which occurred with 2011 Cruze models. The carmaker said there were no crashes or injuries caused by the problem it traced to engine shields on the undersides of the cars. GM said fires could start or spread if oil or other flammable liquids dripped on to the shields.
