Learning outcomes

The course covers some central themes in behavioural economics (a.k.a. economics and psychology). The key aim is to obtain an understanding of how the standard economic model can be modified to provide a more realistic description of economic decision-making.

Contents

Behavioural economics examines ways in which the behaviour of economic agents deviates from the standard model in economics due to non-standard preferences, non-standard beliefs or non-standard decision-making. Topics covered in the course include modelling time preferences, choice under risk and social preferences, with applications to economic decision-making.
