Schlechte Evaluierung rentiert sich kaum: Lehren aus dem Bereich der finanziellen Bildung

Die Verbesserung finanzieller Bildung ist inzwischen weltweit ein etabliertes Ziel der Wirtschaftspolitik, das über vielfältige Initiativen erreicht werden soll. Es verfügen aber nur wenige Wirkungsevaluierungen über den wissenschaftlich wünschenswerten Stand, um die Leistungen dieser Initiativen sicher bewerten zu können.

We study the rapidly growing literature on the causal effects of financial education programs in a meta-analysis of 76 randomized experiments with a total sample size of over 160,000 individuals. The evidence shows that financial education programs have, on average, positive causal treatment effects on financial knowledge and downstream financial behaviors. Treatment effects are economically meaningful ...

Does Financial Education Impact Financial Literacy and Financial Behavior, and if So, When?

In a meta-analysis of 126 impact evaluation studies, we find that financial education significantly impacts financial behavior and, to an even larger extent, financial literacy.

However, intervention impacts are highly heterogeneous: Financial education is less effective for lowincome clients as well as in low and lower-middle ...

Financial Education in Schools: A Meta-Analysis of Experimental Studies

We study the literature on school financial education programs for children and youth via a quantitative meta-analysis of 37 (quasi-) experiments. We find that financial education treatments have, on average, sizeable impacts on financial knowledge (+0.33 SD), similar to educational interventions in other domains. Additionally, we document smaller effects on financial behaviors among students (+0.07 ...
