Economic Psychology

In our Economic Psychology Group at the University of Cologne, we aim to continuously create and communicate knowledge on the psychology of economic decisions. We aspire to understand how people manage money and other scarce resources. Our research focus is on two main areas: Consuming and Financing.

Consuming encompasses the factors involved in acquiring and using goods or services. Exemplary topics in consumer psychology are purchasing decisions, product usage and disposal.

Financing relates to activities to acquire and use financial resources. Exemplary topics are money management, credit use, saving, investing, or taxpaying.
