ECON 3329 Decisions: Theory & Experiments (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course covers some of the theoretical, philosophical, and experimental literature concerning individual and social decision-making under uncertainty, challenging standard notions of rationality used by economists. We will discuss some of the theoretical responses to this criticism, and will see how the concept of rational behavior changed over time. This class challenges students in several respects: the material is highly quantitative; the course is reading intensive; students will be expected to present ideas to the class regularly; there will be a research project that is required. Students should have a track record of outstanding performance in quantitative courses.
