If I Think I Can I Can. Can't I? How Social Mobility Beliefs Influence Your Financial Behavior

This research explores how social mobility expectations influence one’s financial behavior intentions. Across three studies, this research reveals that social mobility expectations impacts behavior intentions; financial self-efficacy mediates whereas financial literacy moderates this relationship. Findings are discussed considering their implications for research on expectancy, financial goal pursuit and decision making.
