“WE’RE NOT ROBOTS.
FINANCIAL POLICY SHOULDN’T ACT LIKE WE ARE.”
Keynote Remarks by Nobel Laureate: Robert J. Shiller
Sterling Professor of Economics
Significant strides in consumer protection, investment advice rules, retirement security policies, fintech innovations on credit, investment, insurance, payments and financial management have been made as a result of behavioral research and innovation over the last decade.
This symposium takes stock of what we have learned, explores where progress or retrenchment has occurred, and charts paths for future research, product innovation and better policies at all levels. We will be exploring four areas in depth: consumer finance, investment and retirement security, micro-enterprise and small business, and macro financial stability.
Registration is required.

Organizer of Behavioral Finance Symposium
The Center on Finance, Law, and Policy at the University of Michigan is an interdisciplinary research center which draws together faculty and students from more than a dozen of Michigan’s nineteen schools and colleges to work on a broad range of research projects focused on creating a financial system that is safer, fairer, and better harnessed to the real economy.
Founded in 2013 by faculty from Michigan Law School, Michigan Ross School of Business, Michigan Ford School of Public Policy, and Michigan College of Engineering, the Center on Finance, Law, and Policy brings together leading scholars from a broad range of disciplines to conduct theoretical, empirical, and applied research aimed at transforming financial policy, financial regulations, financial products and services, and financial institution management.
ideas42 grew out of research programs in psychology and economics at top academic institutions, and our work draws on decades of experimental scientific research. We use these insights to design scalable ways to improve programs, policies and products in the real world. We work with a wide range of partners, from leading foundations and non-profit organizations, to government bodies and businesses. In short, anyone who wants to make a positive difference to peoples’ lives.
