This symposium proceedings examines three aspects of financial education: monitoring and evaluation, use of behavioral economics,  and financial literacy and defined contribution pension plans.



Financial Literacy and the Shift From Defined Benefit to Defined Contribution Pension Plans

The shift to defined contribution pensions requires people to be knowledgeable about finance and economics, yet evidence suggests that even basic numeracy is poor amongst a sizeable proportion of working adults.

It then goes on to consider ways of improving financial education and alternative ways of stimulating retirement planning.
