ECON 178: Behavioral Economics

The field of behavioral economics draws on insights from other disciplines, especially psychology, to enrich our understanding of economic behavior. In this course, we will discuss how psychological considerations can create behavioral patterns that diverge from the predictions of standard economic models, the implications of those behavioral patterns for market outcomes and public policies, and the ways in which economists incorporate those considerations into their theories. We will also examine how social motives (such as altruism or concerns about fairness, equity, status, or image) impact economic behavior. We will learn about classical findings and leading theories in behavioral economics. The treatment of psychological phenomena in this course involves tools similar to those employed in other economics courses. Prerequisites: ECON 50 and ECON 102A. Econ 51 is recommended.
