Article of the Week
Debt Relief Improves Psychological and Cognitive Function, Enabling Better Decision-Making
Can alleviating an individuals debt improve their cognitive performance? A study conducted by the National University of Singapore and Singapore University for Social Science looked at how a program dedicated to relieving debts in low income households affected the anxiety experienced by the individuals, their cognitive function, and their financial decision making. This study provides insight into how reducing the mental burden of debt can lead to more productive behavior and enhance cognitive function. Long term, researchers hope it can inform policy and programming designed to eliminate poverty.
