Introduction to Behavioral Economics
Behavioral economics is a new, and quickly growing field that attempts to provide a more realistic understanding of judgment and decision making in an economic context. In this course, we will discuss the short-comings of the standard economic model, and how these short-comings can be replaced with more plausible assumptions about decision making. We will apply these principles in the areas of labor markets and firm organization, financial markets, and public policy.
