Credit card agreements are written on average at a 12th grade reading level, making them not understandable to four out of five adults, according to a CreditCards.com analysis of all the agreements offered by major card issuers in the United States.
The average American adult reads at a ninth-grade level and readability experts recommend important information -- such as credit card agreements -- be written at that level. Only one in five adults reads above a 12th-grade level.

I only wonder if educational institutions are the root cause or the fact that the country was populated with Europeans that couldn't make it in Europe (bad DNA). Aside from a few smart entrepreneurs most of these immigrants had to be stupid to begin with. Later of course the lower class of other 2nd/3rd world countries got added to the population.
