Course Description: This course examines how to complete economics experiments. It explores the experimental method in economics (and how it differs from methods in other social sciences), doing so through readings of widely cited articles and by completing selected experiments. It discusses the advantages and disadvantages of experimental methods relative to other empirical social science methods such as econometrics, and will document how it can be used to explore the robustness of the "homo economicus" assumption of a rational, selfish decision maker used in many economic models. Topics covered in this course also include individual decision making and risky choice, bargaining and negotiations, cooperation, provision of public goods, punishment of norm violations, coordination problems, and others.
