ECON407

Experimental and Behavioural Economics

Experimental and Behavioural Economics introduces students to this increasingly popular method for testing and simulating economic theory. The paper stresses the interaction of theory and experiment, relating questions in the theory of markets, games and decisions to issues in experimental design and the analysis and interpretation of results. Students will become familiar with experimental methods, learn some interesting applications, and critically evaluate the potential and limitations of laboratory experimental research.
