ECON 4660

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

This course introduces students to behavioral economics, a subfield of economics that incorporates insights from psychology and other social sciences into economics. The course reviews some of the standard assumptions made in economics, and examines evidence on how human behavior systematically departs from these assumptions. The course then investigates alternative models of human decision making, and assesses to what extent these alternative models help improve economic analyses.

When Offered Fall or Spring.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: ECON 3030 or equivalent.
