Cutting edge research on consumer financial decision making by scholars across diverse fields: economics, law, psychology, sociology, anthropology, marketing, finance, and consumer sciences. Lively discussion of this research by scholars, regulators, consumer advocates, and financial services professionals.


Conference Format

On Sunday afternoon, we begin with a keynote address by Alessandro Acquisti of Carnegie Mellon University on the topic of how credit scores and other information about consumers is collected and used by companies for non-lending purposes. Who reaps the benefits of such “sharing” of private information? And how do consumers modify their financial behavior in response to opaque processes that affect how they are treated? This will be followed by panel discussion on this topic,  followed by a reception and poster session. Monday and Tuesday we will have 10 total plenary sessions of 75 minutes each, each with two related papers, a discussant, and plenty of time for audience questions and comments.
