ECON 412 Experimental Economics

Experimental economics helps us test predictions derived from economic models. It also provides a method to explore human behavior in specific environments, help design economic institutions, and provide advice to policy makers. In this course, we will discuss different types of experiments (in the lab, field, or online) over a wide range of economic issues. Throughout the semester, students will also conduct their own experiments and write a formal academic paper about the results. [W]
