The Motley Fool is built on the principles of common sense and the idea that you don't need an economics major to tell you what to do with your money in order to make a profit with it. It's as much a community as an informational site, filled with discussions and peer information about every conceivable financial topic.
Most people avoid the financial section of the daily newspaper like the plague because the stock market reports are utterly incomprehensible. But like any new language, it's only like that until you learn the vocabulary. The Motley Fool will introduce anyone with a smattering of education to the world of personal finance, and from there to the really big finance which most people give up and leave to professionals. It's good information, easily accessible. Go read it now; someday, you'll be glad you did.
