Arna Olafsson receives grant from the Think Forward Initiative (TFI)
Arna Olafsson (Department of Finance, CBS) and two fellow researchers, Dan Silverman (Arizona State University) and Leandro Carvalho (University of Southern California), have received a long-term research grant from the Think Forward Initiative (TFI) for the project: For richer, for poorer: Financial shocks, within-couple insurance, and debt.
Out of a submission of 146 research proposals, 8 long-term research projects and 14 short-term research projects have been selected for a Think Forward Initiative (TFI) grant.
The selected research projects were chosen because they “were seen to provide the most relevant impact-driven insights in the domains of people’s (financial) decision-making, financial health, and financial well-being.”
