Editors: Nicholas S. Souleles, University of Pennsylvania – Finance Department, and Peter Tufano, Harvard Business School

Description: This eJournal distributes working and accepted paper abstracts as an outlet to share new research in the emerging field of household finance. Household finance is defined broadly to include the many financial decisions households make, including the financial functions of payments; saving, investing and portfolio-choice; borrowing and credit; risk management; and advisory services. This research may have a consumer focus (e.g., how and why consumers make certain financial decisions), a business focus (e.g., the economics of different consumer finance products or businesses, or conflicts of interest), or a legal/regulatory focus (e.g., analyses of existing or proposed regulations.)
