Consumer Financial Resilience

Closes:

Literally, resilience refers to the capability to recover quickly from difficulties. Financial resilience then means the capability to recover quickly from financial difficulties. In the current literature, consumer financial resilience is used in various ways. Some authors refer consumer financial resilience as a construct similar to consumer financial wellbeing. Contrasted to financial wellbeing, financial resilience is looking at consumer wellbeing from the perspective of vulnerability. Others use it to measure financial outcomes, financial behaviours, or capabilities. The topic is especially important during the pandemic when many consumers financially struggling due to job loss and income reduction. A special issue like this will help not only clarify theoretical issues on the definitions and measurements of this concept but also provide practical implications that are informative for policy makers and managers for helping improve consumer wellbeing. The aim of this special issue is to assemble a set of high-quality papers to demonstrate cutting edge research results on this topic and provide a sound foundation for future research on this important topic.
