How do beliefs about one’s mortality affect a person’s financial decisions?

In this talk, Dr. Rawley Heimer will discuss recent research on individual beliefs about survival and longevity. The research considers not just what people believe about their chances of survival, but also how they formulate these survival beliefs. You’ll learn how these beliefs play an important role in determining how individuals save and what types of assets they purchase.
