Boudewijn de Bruin

Boudewijn de Bruin, Professor of Financial Ethis at the University of Gronigen, The Neatherlands will speak on the topic of financial literacy and epistemic virtues (critical thinking).

Most reserach on financial literacy focuses on how financial outcomes depnd on people's knowledge of finance concepts.  People generally know very little about finance, so one should expect that financial outcomes are often suboptimal.  De Bruin will discuss the extent to which financial outcomes not only depend on one's financial knowledge, but also on one's ability to critically deal with information.

The discussion will be moderated by JC de Swaan, Lecturer at Princeton adn Partner at Cornwall Capital
