Faculty of Economics, Department of Economics would like to invite you to an extra-semestral course 5EN381 Behavioral and Experimental Economics

Department of Economics, Faculty of Economics has the honor to welcome Professor Jean-Robert Tyran from University of Vienna, who will teach a course about „Behavioral and Experimental Economics“

Are you interested in behavioral and experimental economics and how they can be used to shed new light on important questions in economics, mainly theory of public choice? What is the role of deviations from the assumptions of full rationality and how institutions such as markets, bargaining or democracy might alleviate or multiply individual anomalies?

These and many other questions will be answered in the course of expert on behavioral and experimental economics Professor Jean-Robert Tyran, who will deliver series of lectures about „Behavioral and Experimental Economics“ at Faculty of Economics, Prague University of Economics and Business.

Course will take place from 31/10/22 to 2/11/2022 at RB 212, so if you want to participate, please register via INSIS in section extra-semestral courses. Registration available from 1.9. 2022.

Professor Jean-Robert Tyran concentrates in his research on investigation of how institutions like markets and democracy are shaped by bounded rationality and social preferences. Currently he is involved in a project, which is aimed to establish an internet-based platform for running large-scale economic experiments- iLEE.

Professor Tyran has published more than 50 papers in refereed journals, such as American Economic Review, Econometrica, Review of Economic Studies, Economic Journal, Journal of the European Economic Association and Science, including field journals such as Journal of Public Economics, American Economic Journal: Applied Economics and Games and Economic Behavior.

The course Behavioral and Experimental Economics focuses on selected topics. After successful completion of this course, students will be able to understand selected concepts of behavioral and experimental economics with respect to mainstream economics and evaluate the role of institutions and markets in the context of multiplication of individual anomalies with ability to derive substantial economic implications.

The aim of the course is to emphasize that identifying individual-level “anomalies” is not sufficient to demonstrate their economic and social importance. Instead, it must be analyzed how institutions mitigate and multiply these anomalies. A broad range of institutions, including markets, bargaining and democracy is discussed.
