The article focuses on the survey results on the financial goals of young adults and parents in the U.S. conducted by Wells Fargo & Co. It notes that the top three financial goals for young adults include purchasing a car, a house, and getting a job whereas finding a job, paying student loans, and credit cards are the goals of parents. The survey indicates a knowledge gap between the generations in terms of money management and the need for additional education is stressed.
