Investigating the impact of financial literacy on an individual

Started Sept. 12, 2022

Abstract or project description

The thesis of this paper is that the age an individual develops financial literacy will positively impact one's wealth over their lifetime. Aditya surveyed roughly 100 people, gathering data on personal income, spending habits, investing habits, and the age they became financially knowledgeable. His data contradicts his thesis and shows that one's age is not a strong factor in financial responsibility. However, Aditya gained several valuable insights from his research to help government and academic institutions employ socially beneficial policies.
