Article of the Week
Why consumers make bad financial decisions, and how to help
A group of researchers, including Abigail Sussman of the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, show in their new paper that financial mistakes happen when consumers fail to examine all of their choices when making monetary decisions. Trust and social context are shown to also play a role in bad decisions. Consumers sometimes either have too much trust in financial advisers or too little trust. Additionally, they may be motivated to make choices in part based on how others perceive their decisions. The paper provides solutions that institutions and employers can implement to help the public make better financial choices.
