|Financial Wellness Meets Behavioral Economics: Helping Participants See the Big Picture and Act On It (PDF)|
Oct. 26, 2021
12 pages. "[M]any people exhibit a behavioral tendency known as narrow framing, which can lead people ... to allocate their savings to the wrong accounts, choose the wrong health insurance plans and fail to prepare for unexpected financial shocks. This paper outlines a new approach, informed by behavioral economics, that minimizes the problem of narrow framing. For instance, it explains how workers can be nudged to save for emergencies, thus helping them avoid cashing out their retirement savings during a financial shock. It also outlines sample interventions that can be used to help people reduce health care costs."
