    Paul Grimes

    Grimes (’79 BS, ’80 MS) is Emeritus Professor of Economics at Mississippi State University, where he worked for 25 years before joining the faculty at PSU.

    His international economic education work includes projects in Russia, Paraguay, South Africa, and Indonesia, and he’s the author of more than 100 scholarly research publications, and is editor-in-chief of The American Economist.

    In the early 2000s, he helped to re-establish the Mississippi Council for Economic Education and was the founding director of the Center for Economic Education and Financial Literacy. Under his leadership, the center won an award from the National Council for Economic Education in 2008 for outstanding and innovative programs.

    Grimes credited colleagues with contributing to a shared success.

    “I am very honored and humbled to receive this recognition,” he said. “Throughout my academic career I have been extremely fortunate to be the right places at the right times and to be surrounded by the right people who have helped me on the way.”

    We examine financial literacy and the returns to financial literacy education, specifically focusing on the racial financial literacy gap. We confirm evidence that whites have higher financial literacy scores relative to minorities and that financial literacy increases with participation in financial literacy education. However, we find the benefit of participation in financial literacy education is higher for whites than that for minorities. Thus, the impact of being white alone persists, indicating a racial financial literacy and/or behavioral difference despite financial literacy education. Our findings have implications for policymakers interested in narrowing the racial wealth gap via financial literacy education.
