CEGA’s Psychology and Economics of Poverty (PEP) Collaborative hosted its second annual convening on Friday, May 17th, 2019 at UC Berkeley.
Faculty and graduate students from the disciplines of psychology and economics shared research advancing our understanding of the causes and consequences of poverty. By merging insights from the traditionally independent fields of social and developmental psychology, behavioral economics, and public policy, we aimed to explore how scarcity and uncertainty affects cognition as well as mental health, beliefs, aspirations, and economic decision-making. Building on the momentum from our inaugural event, the convening highlighted exciting new research while strengthening a growing, interdisciplinary community of practice in this space.
