Written on 31 October 2018.


Forthcoming in the American Economic Review, Professor Raman Uppal's paper entitled "The financial mistakes of households and their social costs", co-written with Professor Harjoat Bhamra.

What their research work shows is that, in addition to the direct benefits of diversification, there are substantial indirect benefits both for individual households and for the aggregate economy. Therefore, encouraging households to hold better-diversified portfolios would not only benefit individual households but also boost economic growth.
