However, according to a new report in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Technology, stress could make our financial issues worse even. The study, executed by psychologists Anthony J. Porcelli and Mauricio R. Delgado of Rutgers University, reveals that acute tension affects risk taking during financial decision making.
