I am studying the negative effects of holding debt on cognition and decision-making. Based on my prior experimental work, I hypothesize that debt clouds judgment and leads to suboptimal choices. In a field experimental, I will elicit how investment decisions are hindered by debt and if poverty exacerbates these effects. There is little work in the literature on the psychological burden of debt, and I believe my project answers a novel question relevant to understand the drivers of poverty.
