TCE BidStats

Although researchers in social psychology and economics share many interests and address many of the same topics, they do so from different points of view. This seminar focuses on how these two fields overlap and how they differ in their approach. Thus, the course pushes an appreciation of both fields as we read some of the best experimental research in both fields and how they have addressed the same set of topics. Typical topics include altruism, money, emotions, physiology, auctions, fairness, decision making, trust, gender, bargaining, cheating, social norms, prisoners’ dilemmas, social dilemmas, public goods, ultimatum, and dictatorship games.
