Abstract

Does financial literacy- such as understanding the often complicated terms of debt-contribute to financial success, and is there any correlation with ethical behavior? The interdisciplinary conference, supported by ISU's Center for Excellence in the Arts and Humanities, brought together scholars from across the disciplines to discuss debt from multiple perspectives including the history of debt, philosophical approaches to debt, representations of debt in art and literature, the meaning and experiences of debt, debt and the economy, education and debt, and debt and the state.Often serving as client educators, they may prescribe optional use of debt to improve financial wellbeing.[...]financial counselors and planners need to serve as reliable and informed resources for policymakers in the development of ethical lending and borrowing practices.
