ECO 363 - Behavioral & Experimental Econ
Behavioral & Experimental Economics
Prerequisites: None

The course examines economic decision making using two different approaches. The first one is by providing an introduction to the study of the psychological, cognitive, emotional, and social factors that influence choices made at the individual, firm, group, and national level. The second one introduces students to the application of these topics through experimental methods vital to answering important economic questions. Specific topics include heuristics, framing, game theory, prospect theory, risk preferences, and inter-temporal choice. This course will be based on analyzing current and emerging research from a critical perspective. Students are encouraged to assess how each of the discussed topics relate to their own lives and how they might respond to each economic decision and issue presented.
