Interview: Annamaria Lusardi
Abstract: Annamaria Lusardi "fell in love" with economics, she says, thanks to a macroeconomics course she took as an undergraduate at Bocconi University in her native Italy. But her career has been focused on a quite different topic — she's a leading researcher in personal finance. How good are the skills and information that individuals bring to their financial decisions? And how can institutions provide them with the skills to make better decisions? These are the questions that have been preoccupying her for the past several decades, most recently as University Professor at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. She is also the academic director of the university's Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center, a research center she founded in 2011.
