教育目標

In this course, we will introduce not only traditional topics of experimental economics, but also recent findings from the collaboration with those fields mentioned above. Students will be informed the latest results of this interdiscilinary research when each lesson of the course is being taught. Furthermore, we are going to introduce you the principles of experimental methodology while we go through the experiments in the classroom.

課程概述

Experimental economics is a growing body of research regarding testing of theories, discovery of new phenonmena, and market design. The purpose of this course is to provide introductions to the theory and practice of experi- mental economics. Therefore, we will let you experience the experiments in person, and present you research results from contemporary experimental studies in the former part of this semester. Students are supposed to be aware of major ‾ndings of experimental economics, and be able to recognize the discrepancy or concordance between economic theory and experimental results after the class. Another important development of experimental economics is its con- nection with psychology, neuroscience, and agent-based computational eco- nomics. In this course, we will introduce not only traditional topics of ex- perimental economics, but also recent ‾ndings from the collaboration with those ‾elds mentioned above. Students will be informed the latest results of this interdiscilinary research when each lesson of the course is being taught. Furthermore, we are going to introduce you the principles of experimen- tal methodology while we go through the experiments in the classroom. In the latter part of this semester, we will focus more on the design principles and the execution rules of experiments. Students are expected to design their own experiments, and will have chances to present and run their ex- periments.
