Workshop in experimental economics

Thursday, 16 June 2016

With the award of the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2002 to Daniel Kahneman ("for having integrated insights from psychological research into economic science, especially concerning human judgment and decision-making under uncertainty") and  Vernon L. Smith ("for having established laboratory experiments as a tool in empirical economic analysis, especially in the study of alternative market mechanisms"), the experimental methods traditionally implemented in scienific labs became ordinary research tools in the fields of Economics.

The Workshop will be held by Visiting professors Bryan McCannon and Greg DeAngelo of the West Virginia University and CRENoS-DiSEA researchers, who will explain the basic principles of the methodologies and will talk about recent developments in the study of individual and collective behavious.
