Sunday Forum – Dec. 3 at 11:15am (Canceled)

Unfortunately, this Sunday Forum has been canceled. We will work to reschedule for a future date.

Why is it so hard to save for the future?  

House, a car, kids’ education, medical/job emergency, retirement, legacy, etc.How can we make it easier?  What does Behavioral Economics have to say about this?

Richard Thaler received the 2017 Nobel Prize for his work on Behavioral Economics. This talk will apply the insights of his coauthored book, “Nudge,” to the personal investment decisions individuals and families face, with the goal of laying out some personal strategies that can be used to increase our saving effectiveness.

The UUCC Endowment Board (endowment@uucolumbia.net) is sponsoring this session because we feel that financially stronger families will lead to a financially sounder UUCC, both in the short run and the long run, strengthening our ability to improve our world.

The session will be presented by Charles “Scotty” Scott, Professor Emeritus of economics, Loyola University Maryland. Participants will be entered into a drawing for one of 8 copies of “Nudge” to be given away.

Please contact Betsy Osterman (eo21045@gmail.com) with questions or comments about Sunday Forums.
