National Savings Forum Video Highlights

On May 21st, America Saves hosted the 2014 National Savings Forum.  The moderators, panelists, and speakers addressed issues including:

  • Behavioral economics theories that have the most potential to succeed on a large scale,
  • Viable business models with innovative savings products that will serve the low to moderate income market, and
  • The role government agencies play in promoting and supporting successful lifelong saving.

Members of the audience engaged the panelists in robust discussions of these topics and everyone came out of the meeting with sharper insight on how best to encourage, support, and facilitate savings.

We encourage those of you who attended – and those of you who could not – to watch the following videos and share them with your colleagues. It was a great event and we are so grateful for the participation of those who were able to attend. America Saves looks forward to welcoming everyone to the 2015 National Savings Forum in May.
