CENTER EVENT: Behavioral Policy Speaker Series with Brigitte Madrian — Saving for Now, Saving for Later

Thu, Apr 26, 2018, 4:30 pm

Rounding out the 2017-18 Behavioral Policy Speaker Series will be a talk by Brigitte Madrian, entitled "Saving for Now, Saving for Later." Madrian is the Aetna Professor of Public Policy and Corporate Management at the Harvard Kennedy School and serves as the co-director of the Household Finance working group at the National Bureau of Economic Research.  Her research examines household financial decision-making through the lens of behavioral economics.  Her talk will explain how behavioral science can help us better understand individual savings outcomes, and how it can be used to inform policy solutions to help individuals save more for both short-term needs (e.g., a rainy day account) and longer-term outcomes (e.g., retirement).
