Today I found a site called Credit Solution Program. It teaches you about your credit score, how it works and how to increase your credit score. For free.

 About the Credit Solution Program:

Mike Roberts is the founder of the Credit Solution Program. He has seen how important understanding credit has been in improving his own life. And because of this Mike has dedicated himself to teaching others how to improve their lives by raising their credit score and taking control of their personal finances.

The Credit Solution Program is a unique system that aims to educate with engaging videos that are both informative and fun to watch. The content on the site and in CSP products is created by Mike Roberts and a team of subject matter experts.

We hope that you enjoy learning here.

Upon reading the book, Freakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner, I found this interesting quote:

‘I’d like to put together a set of tools that let us catch terrorists,’ Levitt said. ‘I don’t necessarily know yet how I’d go about it. But given the right data, I have little doubt that I could figure out the answer.’

It might seem absurd for an economist to dream of catching terrorists. Just as it might have seemed absurd if you were a Chicago schoolteacher, called into an office and told that, ahem, the algorithms designed by that skinny man with thick glasses had determined that you are a cheater. And that you are being fired. Steven Levitt may not fully believe in himself, but he does believe in this: teachers and criminals and real-estate agents may lie, and politicians, and even CIA analysts. But numbers don’t.
