ECO422H1S Special Topics in Economics, Topics in Behavioural Economics

Behavioural Economics is a relatively new field that incorporates insights gained from Psychological, Experimental and Neuroscientific studies. Research methods adapted from behavioural economics are now being employed in virtually every field in economics. The course will cover the main themes in behavioral economics: individual choices under risk and uncertainty, reference-dependent choices, intertemporal preferences, other-regarding preferences, bounded rationality in individual and interactive decision-making, and the measurement of rationality and recovery of preferences.
