The experience of living in poverty has psychological consequences that impede a person’s ability to navigate the challenges of daily life, make decisions, and plan for the future. Further research on the relationships between poverty and beliefs, aspirations, mental health, stress, and cognition has the potential to help both the public and private sectors in designing and targeting interventions that effectively increase welfare for the world’s poor. The Psychology and Economics of Poverty (PEP) Seminar Series is an open, online forum for showcasing new research on poverty at the intersection of psychology and economics. We encourage participants to be engaged, and to ask questions and provide feedback to presenters.
