Beskrivning
Kursbeskrivning 

The course  aims providing advanced economics students in the FDPE with insights regarding the implications of relaxing some of the standard simplifying rationality assumptions and adopting psychologically motivated alternative assumptions. The idea is to further learn to critically evaluate the modelling assumptions made both in behavioural (descriptive) and what is sometimes called "standard" (prescriptive) theory and understand the various criteria for choosing modelling assumptions. The backbone of the course is theoretical analysis but the course is spiced with economic experiments to provide further insight and evidence. The course offers an overview into Behavioural decisions, Behavioural games, Dynamic behavioral decisions, Experimental economics and experiment settings, as well as applications thereof.

The course has changed name to Behavioral and Experimental Economics from 1.8.2020.

 
Lärandemål 

You have an in-depth understanding of what descriptive, as opposed to prescriptive models, are there for, and how they introduce context-dependency and incorporate psychological assumptions into (micro)economics. You have insights regarding the implications of relaxing some of the standard simplifying rationality assumptions and adopting psychologically motivated alternative assumptions.

 
Efter avlagd kurs kan du 
  • write down psychologically motivated models of economics
  • distinguish between the various purposes of standard and behavioral modeling.
  • apply modelling tools in the context relevant for your own research.
  • assess the limitations and benefits of economic experimentation in empirical work
  • critically evaluate the modelling assumptions made both in behavioral (descriptive) and what is sometimes called "standard" (prescriptive) theory and understand the various criteria for choosing modelling assumptions.
  • design simple experiments.
