Judd B. Kessler

Assistant Professor of Business Economics and Public Policy, University of Pennsylvania

Kessler (working with Andrew Schotter) will write a series of papers examining the impact of both explicit and implicit advice on people’s decision making processes and their subsequent life outcomes. He hypothesizes that one of the reasons why the rich stay rich and the poor stay poor is the quality of advice each receives when they make major life decisions.
