8-A: Attenuating Money Illusion? How Personalization Affects the Consideration of Inflation in the Consumers’ Financial Planning

We study how letting consumers construct their personal inflation rate affects the consideration of inflation in the long-term financial planning. We find that the personalization is not beneficial: The complex elicitation procedure reduces the subjective knowledge about inflation, which induces consumers to care less about inflation in their financial planning.
