PSYC 489 - Behavioral and Experimental Economics

Cross-Listed as ECON 489  
This course surveys recent developments in behavioral economics and considers applications in labor economics, macroeconomics, finance, public finance, consumer choice, and other areas. Our goal is to draw on recent work in cognitive and evolutionary psychology to better understand human behavior and incorporate these insights into neoclassical reasoning and modeling. This course counts as a Group E elective for the Economics major. It meets concurrently with ECON 490. It is NOT a capstone course, but requires that students complete a significant assignment rather than a capstone project. Offered every other year. (4 Credits)
