ECON 277: Behavioral and Experimental Economics III

Economics 277 is a course for graduate students in the Economics department writing dissertations with behavioral or experimental components. Economics 277 is part of a three course sequence (along with Econ 278 & 279), which has two main objectives: 1) examining theories and evidence related to the psychology of economic decision making; 2) introducing methods of experimental economics, and exploring major subject areas (including those not falling within behavioral economics) that have been addressed through laboratory experiments. Focuses on series of experiments that build on one another in an effort to test between competing theoretical frameworks, with the objectives of improving the explanatory and predictive performance of standard models, and of providing a foundation for more reliable normative analyses of policy issues. Prerequisites: Non-Econ Phd students must complete 204 and 271, or have consent of instructor.
Terms: Spr | Units: 2-5 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

ECON 278: Behavioral and Experimental Economics I

This is the first half of a three course sequence (along with Econ 277 & 279) on behavioral and experimental economics. The sequence has two main objectives: 1) examines theories and evidence related to the psychology of economic decision making, 2) Introduces methods of experimental economics, and explores major subject areas (including those not falling within behavioral economics) that have been addressed through laboratory experiments. Focuses on series of experiments that build on one another in an effort to test between competing theoretical frameworks, with the objects of improving the explanatory and predictive performance of standard models, and of providing a foundation for more reliable normative analyses of policy issues. Prerequisites: 204 and 271, or consent of instructor.

OIT 605: Behavioral Operations Management

Behavioral Operations incorporates insights from cognitive psychology, social psychology and behavioral economics to study how individuals make decisions in an operational context. Two major goals of Behavioral Operations are to provide a better understanding of (and make better predictions about) behavioral regularities in operational settings, and to provide guidance to firms on how to design mechanisms that will lead to better decisions and improved performance. This course has several aims: (1) To survey foundational research from economics and psychology on important behavioral factors such as bounded rationality and decision heuristics, folk intuitions about random processes, preference regularities such as loss aversion and reference dependent preferences, and interpersonal factors such as trust and fairness. (2) To apply behavioral insights to core operational settings such as inventory decision making, queueing systems, supply chain relationships, contracting, etc. (3) To disc more »

(2) To apply behavioral insights to core operational settings such as inventory decision making, queueing systems, supply chain relationships, contracting, etc. (3) To discuss how to conduct behaviorally-inspired research using a range of methodologies including analytical modeling, laboratory and field experiments, and observational empirics. There will be a particular emphasis on laboratory experimental design, and in in many cases we will examine series of experiments to see how experiments can build on each other ¿ especially when researchers with different theoretical predispositions look at the same issue. Our goal is to help students identify behavioral issues to incorporate into their research interests, as well as opportunities to engage in experimental research as an extension of their current research agenda. This course meets the behavioral requirement for OIT PhD students.
