PBS Special from Personal Finance Expert Suze Orman on Creating a New American Dream

- Orman Offers Bold Rethinking of Traditional Financial Strategies -

In SUZE ORMAN’S MONEY CLASS, financial powerhouse Suze Orman delivers her expert take on what actions everyone needs to consider to secure a hopeful and sustainable financial future in light of the new economic reality. After the upheavals of the economic downturn that began in 2008, Orman believes it’s critical to rethink many of the traditional strategies we’ve been using to achieve our financial goals. SUZE ORMAN’S MONEY CLASS premieres Tuesday, March 8, 2011, 7:00-9:00 p.m. ET (check local listings) on PBS.

In this special, Orman offers hard-hitting advice in her trademark no-nonsense style on how to navigate today’s unsettling economic waters. The core of her message is an inspirational re-imagining of the American Dream — based on integrity and standing in your truth.

Throughout this financial master class, Orman equips viewers with timely, powerful and often surprising advice for getting a grip on the most important financial fundamentals: understanding the opportunities and pitfalls of the real estate market, raising financially aware children, borrowing for college and paying off student loans, building a career, saving and investing, planning for retirement and more. 

As Orman puts it, “I am calling on you to re-educate yourself, to discover — perhaps for the very first time — what truly constitutes your new American Dream. You will learn what it means to stand tall in your truth today, so that you can realize your vision for tomorrow.” 

Taped before a live audience in Minneapolis at the University of Minnesota, this special presents fresh insight in Orman’s time-honored style: plenty of frank and down-to-earth advice combined with compassionate and humorous Q and A. Orman’s much-anticipated new program will offer viewers nationwide the insight and encouragement they need to succeed on this new financial frontier. 

The premiere broadcast of SUZE ORMAN’S MONEY CLASS will be accompanied by the publication of Orman’s new book: The Money Class: Learn to Create Your New American Dream (Spiegel & Grau).
