Behavioral Economics (ECON 494E/694)

The Economics Department is offering a course in Behavioral Economics (ECON 494E/694)

Behavioral Economics is an important and growing field within economics. One of its strengths is that it takes seriously findings from other disciplines – particularly psychology – but also neuroscience, sociology and others. Research in the field recognizes that the traditional assumption that people are perfectly rational is too strong. The  implications of bounded rationality are being worked out in many fields of economics, finance, and in business and policy applications.
