This course provides an interdisciplinary overview of consumer finance. In the past few decades, culminating in the COVID-19 pandemic, households have faced the mounting pressures on their finances due to mortgages, student loans, credit cards, healthcare, long term care, and inadequate retirement income. Demands to ease this pressure led to the establishment of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the issuance of a variety of regulations aimed at improving consumer outcomes. Students in this course will learn the economic underpinnings of how consumers make financial decisions, like choosing loans, insurance, and retirement products. The course traces out existing consumer protection efforts targeting financial products, focusing on particular markets where recent regulations have been passed. The course will explore the legal theories related to ongoing discussions about consumer financial protection. Students will be expected to participate in class discussions and write a policy paper and presentation for the final classes.
