How do individuals repay their debt?: the balance-matching heuristic (2019)
Journal Article
Gathergood, J., Mahoney, N., Stewart, N., & Weber, J. (2019). How do individuals repay their debt?: the balance-matching heuristic. American Economic Review, 109(3), 844-875. doi:10.1257/aer.20180288

We study how individuals repay their debt using linked data on multiple credit cards. Repayments are not allocated to the higher interest rate card, which would minimize the cost of borrowing. Moreover, the degree of misallocation is invariant to the... Read More
