    Description

    This course covers topics in Behavioral Economics, which aims at integrating insights from psychology into economics. Behavioral economics departs from “mainstream economic theory” by weakening its strong assumptions, such as perfect rationality or pure self-interest. The course will cover central themes in psychology and economics, including time preferences and present-biasedness, the role of social preferences and reciprocity, reference-dependent preferences and loss aversion, as well as belief formation, learning and motivated beliefs.

    Training objectives

    The goal of the course is to introduce students to some of the key applications of behavioral economics. This involves both formal modeling of behavioral assumptions and the empirical assessment and identification of behavioral biases. As a consequence, the course is suited both for students interested in theoretical and in empirical work.
