Experimental Economics

  • Description of the course:

    The objective of Experimental Economics is to test the validity of economic theories, detect departures from those theories and identify patterns of behavior useful to build new theories. Economic experiments replicate real-word incentives and are conducted either in the laboratory or in the field. The objective of this course is to review experimental methods and analyze in detail a few experimental studies. The course is designed for PhD students.
