About the Lecture

Financial education is a popular tool to keep up with an ever-evolving and complex financial system. But how has financial education changed behaviors? Which behaviors can and should change, and at what cost? This talk will review research findings pertaining to the effectiveness of financial education and for whom financial education is most effective.
