Does Poverty Lower Productivity? Evidence on the Cognitive Effects of Financial Constraints

Colloquium | April 12 | 4-5:30 p.m. | 2538 Channing (Inst. for the Study of Societal Issues), Wildavsky Conference Room

 Supreet Kaur, Assistant Professor, Department of Economics, UC Berkeley

 Institute for the Study of Societal Issues

Recent work at the intersection of psychology and economics posits that the condition of being financially constrained induces cognitive load, leading to potentially lower cognitive function among the poor. If true, this has the potential to lower labor productivity among the poor—providing a channel through which poverty could directly reinforce itself.
