Multimedia in the financial field is used in a number of ways, the main purpose of which is to relay as much financial information as possible in the quickest manner. Finance uses multimedia as a tool to describe the financial world which incorporates words, numbers, and graphs. Also their are several pod casts and blogs about different financial and economic situations. For the most part the financial world takes advantage of multimedia as much as they can.
The only suggestion I could make would be to create more interactive programs so that people could fiddle with future forecasts and see causes and effects of changes that are made within markets and interest rates. This would enable people to be more involved and empowered in their own financial decisions. Other than that, I find that the competition bred by the financial sector already encourages new ways to disseminate and provide information.
