Abstract

Die insbesondere während des vergangenen Jahrzehnts auf den Weg gebrachten Reformen unterstellen, dass private Haushalte immer stärker eigenständig Vorsorge gegen Unwägbarkeiten und Gefahren treffen. Das gilt mindestens in einem ergänzenden Sinne für die Altersvorsorge. Gleichzeitig fehlt allerdings häufig das finanzielle Verständnis, um derartigen Anforderungen zu entsprechen. Es wird deshalb zu Recht als eine wichtige öffentliche Aufgabe angesehen, die Voraussetzungen für finanzielle Allgemeinbildung zu schaffen. Das Ziel des Beitrags ist es, knapp zu zeigen, wie die moderne Finanzwissenschaft, sowohl in ihrer angewandten als auch ihrer verhaltenswissenschaftlichen Ausrichtung, auf nützliche Weise zu der Problemlösung beitragen kann.
