What: Second Annual Boulder Summer Conference on Consumer Financial Decision Making
When: June 26-28, 2011
Where: St. Julien Hotel and Spa, Boulder, Colorado

You are invited JDMers to attend the 2011 Boulder Summer Conference on Consumer Financial Decision Making — to be held at the St. Julien Hotel and Spa in Boulder, Colorado, June 26-28, 2011.

Consumer welfare is strongly affected by household financial decisions large and small: choosing mortgages; saving to fund college education or retirement; using credit cards to fund current consumption; choosing how to “decumulate” savings in retirement; deciding how to pay for health care and insurance; and investing in the stock market. In all of these domains, consumers are often poorly informed and susceptible to making serious errors that have large personal and societal consequences.

The Boulder Summer Conference is truly an exceptional opportunity to discuss cutting edge research on consumer financial decision making by scholars across diverse fields: JDM, economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, marketing, finance, consumer behavior, social work, and family consumer sciences. We have lively discussion of this research by scholars, regulators, consumer advocates, and financial services professionals. Registration is limited to 120 conference participants.
