JFI was pleased to host Dubravka Ritter for an early discussion of ongoing research she is conducting at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia on student loan debt, and particularly interesting research on student loan debt among seniors. The upcoming paper was produced in collaboration with academics at two universities.
Dubravka also shared the results of research on the impacts of identity theft, completed as part of the Consumer Finance Institute with Nathan Blascak, Julia Cheney, Robert Hunt, Slava Mikhed, and Michael Vogan. As over 17 million adults are victims of identity theft in the U.S. each year, the findings of this research pertain to important policy and protection issues for consumers.
Thank you to Dubravka for the presentation; we look forward to the fuller report when it is out.
