Does it all start at Home? The Educational impact on Economic Choices (EIEC)
In this project, we seek to identify the impact of studying different majors on financial performance and efficiency of household economic choices later in life. For example, studying finance or economics could cause people to make better financial choices (e.g. lower debt delinquency), or the type of individuals likely to make better financial choices may apply anyway to study in these types of program. To the best of our knowledge, our study will be the first to separate the selection and the causal effect of university education in financial and economic outcomes later in life.
