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




The financial crisis focussed the attention of governments around the world on the critical need to empower consumers through financial education. As governments launch new initiatives to improve their population’s financial skills, demand has grown for research to guide the development of these initiatives as well as tools to measure their impact and effectiveness. The OECD is working hard to meet this demand, providing guidance to governments and other concerned stakeholders based on research and tools developed over the past decade.
