The diffusion of financial literacy
September 17, 2015 - September 18, 2015
This WG 2 meeting focuses on the diffusion of knowledge in the specific segment of financial culture. Financial culture intervenes in major and minor aspects of everyday life. Moreover, phenomena of crisis and the recession in the economy concern the relationship between finance as an economic sector and citizens. Therefore, understanding of the financial system should not be the privilege of close circles, but should be spread to all the levels of the society, and an analysis of the overall diffusion till to the bottom levels is proper. The workshop is timely, due to recent highlights on the topics spotted out in UK and IT. The workshop aims at gathering experts on Finance and Economics; practitioners and students of any degree and level. One further aspect will be to look into web-spheres, e.g., web pages that give suggestions for the investment without any control. Such information may lead to minor and major crashes due to trust and herding behaviour. The workshop aims also at examining case studies on the specific issue of propagation of information through on-line channels.
Organiser: Giulia Rotundo, Peter Richmond and Stefani Silvani (local).
