ABOUT BEHAVIORAL ECONOMICS
Behavioral Economics has developed into one of the most productive and empirically relevant research fields in Economics since the mid-1990s. Behavioral economic experiments involve real people who make serious decisions in response to incentives. Experimental methods can be applied to analyze and validate theories in all fields of economics and beyond. The experimental method also lends itself to interdisciplinary work between economics and, among others, political scientists, marketers, psychologists, sociologists, biologists and mathematicians.
