Here you find a summary of our work and project idea.
Firms make use of instruments like complex contracts and misleading ads to exploit consumer vulnerabilities, disproportionately affecting vulnerable groups. The DFG research group "Consumer Preferences, Consumer Mistakes, and Firms' Response" aims to understand these tactics, their impact, and propose regulatory solutions to reduce consumer exploitation.
The research program is divided into three areas, which are further divided into three projects. Here you will find detailed information about each research area.
