In this reading group, we will discuss current research in behavioral and experimental economics. We will focus on four topics: Experimental Methodology, Belief formation and elicitation, Social Preferences, and Behavioral Economics Applications. Each of the topics will be discussed in 3-4 weeks. Participants are expected to read carefully one paper per week. Additionally, participants have to lead the discussion of an article 1-2 times per semester (depending on the number of participants). Discussants should not shy away from discussing details of the experimental design, econometric technique or modeling assumptions of a paper. By joining the reading group, students can commit to read and discuss interesting research each week and benefit from a cooperative environment where we help each other to understand details and to identify the gist of a paper.
