Theme 2: Finance

Households usually make joint decisions, taking into account their income, time use and household production. Also the development of human capital is important because of children and role specializations of household partners. These factors influence household financial decision making. Furthermore, financial literacy and financial capability determine how households can make ends meet, or save. Our research focuses on financial management, financial decision making, perceived inflation, consumer confidence, mental budgeting, and micro-financing.
