The Impact of College Student Money Attitudes on Credit Responsibility
Moore, Marguerite; Carpenter, Jason M.
College Student Journal, v43 n4 p1116-1124 Dec 2009
Growing concern among academics, policymakers and educators to address credit abuse among college students prompts a need for greater understanding of the determinants of these negative behaviors. The present study investigates the impact of individuals' money attitudes on both negative and positive credit behaviors within a single empirical model (N=278). A two-stage structural equation model indicates that money anxiety and power-prestige positively impact negative credit behavior while distrust positively impacts responsible credit behavior and negatively impacts poor credit behavior. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
