Consumer Behavior And Payment Choice: 2006 Conference Summary
Source: Federal Reserve Bank of Boston
This paper summarizes the proceedings of the second Consumer Behavior and Payment Choice conference, held at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston on July 25 - 27, 2006. These conferences are unique in featuring the collaboration of two groups of payments experts - the private?]sector payments industry on the one hand, and the academic, research, and policymaking communities on the other - to stimulate more research and understanding of consumer payment behavior. The central focus of this second conference was learning more about the numerous consumer payments data sources that are available - but which are not well known or easily accessed, often for proprietary reasons - and discovering what further information is needed.
