Content & learning objectives
This seminar focuses on recent developments in experimental economics. Each weak, students are required to read one recent article or research paper that we will then critically discuss in class. Emphasis will be given to the choice of the research question, the experimental design, and the data analysis. Students develop familiarity with the design and use of experiments as a method for economic research. Students will be able to critically assess experimental economics research articles with respect to research question, experimental design, and empirical analysis.
