  • Overzicht

This one-week crash course is an introduction to experimental economics. The course provides students with the skills needed to design and run an experiment.

Topics include:
* experimental methodology
* behavioural economics (public goods, bargaining, other-regarding preferences)
* industrial organisation (auctions, double auction, market power, mechanism design)
* individual decision-making (expected utility, probability weighting)
* analysis of experimental data

The course consists of:
* lectures given by the instructor
* participation in experiment run by the instructors
* experiments developed and run by groups of students
* presentations of experimental results

There will be an additional one-day module on Statistical Data Analysis at the end of the course.

For the experiments, students will be split into groups of 5 or 6. Each group will develop an experiment on their preferred topic and run the experiment using the other students as participants. The groups will then analyze the data and present the results. A class discussion will follow.
