Want to learn how to use Behavioral Economics in your degree?

Morality, Loss, Emotion, Intention, Failure, Self Control!!! Behavioral Economics pivots economic theory towards humanity.
This is a talk about the many, many insights these new theories have provided, how they challenge our textbook understanding
(especially if you are an economist) and will introduce you to the machinery with which to use them in your research.

Please welcome Professor Sanjit Dhami, behavioral economist (Leicester University), and author of the «Foundations of Behavioral Economic Analysis”, the most comprehensive (and entertaining) introduction to the field, covering decision theory, game theory, social learning, altruism, morality, emotion, behavioral finance, welfare, and neuroeconomics.

His research currently mixes theory and experiments to investigate the role of emotions in public good games. In the past he has worked on an eclectic range of questions from how other-regarding preferences influence redistribution policy, the optimal taxation policy under prospect theory, on punishment and inter-temporal choice, and heuristics in game theory.

Professor Dhami will also be staying for an extra 30 minutes after the talk to discuss any questions you have about Behavioral Economics and delve into more detail with any of the theories and applications. Not sure what you would like to ask (it’s a very broad field), perhaps you’ll find inspiration from the contents pages of his textbook, accessible here: (look inside).
