FDIC Division of Depositor & Consumer Protection Joins Finance Research Centers Papers
We are pleased to announce FDIC Division of Depositor & Consumer Protection, has started a new Finance Research Centers Papers series within the Financial Economics Network (FEN).
FDIC DIVISION OF DEPOSITOR & CONSUMER PROTECTION WORKING PAPER SERIES
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's (FDIC) Division of Depositor and Consumer Protection (DCP) Consumer Research Working Paper Series presents preliminary research by DCP research staff on consumer finance topics including consumer financial decision making, consumer financial product markets, and community development, with a particular focus on topics relevant to economic inclusion. The FDIC recognizes that public confidence in the banking system is strengthened when banks effectively serve the broadest possible set of consumers. As a result, the agency is committed to increasing the participation of unbanked and underbanked consumers in the financial mainstream. The papers in this series are circulated to stimulate discussion and critical comment from a broad audience. The analysis, conclusions, and opinions set forth in these working papers are those of the authors alone and do not necessarily reflect the views of the FDIC.
