Research includes behavioral economics and household finance, with a focus on low-income households. In a series of papers, Jeremy has found that psychologically-informed models of intertemporal choice help to explain patterns of simultaneous mid-life wealth accumulation and credit card borrowing in the United States. One line of ongoing work investigates why people borrow on payday loans and measures the individual-level effects of access to payday loan credit.
