dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between financial literacy and decisiveness in making risk preference and time preference choices by university students. The study collected data using a questionnaire, implemented a multiple price list risk preference and time preference experiment, and administered a financial literacy test on 192 university students (female = 53%). A maximum of 7 680 risk preference and 7 680 time preference choices were elicited from the university students. An ordinary least squares regression model shows that multiple switching or indecisiveness on risk preference and time preference choices increase as financial literacy decreases. University students with low financial literacy are more likely to switch back-forth between binary lotteries. Low financial literacy increases behavioural biases and short cuts in making preference choices. Being financial literate helps university students to be decisive in making risk and time preference choices.en_ZA
