|Description:||This course introduces the key concepts in behavioral economics, a modern and quickly emerging field that integrates insights from psychology into economics. We will focus on the following topics: social preferences and fairness, time discounting and limited self-control, risk preferences, discrimination and group identity, inattention, behavioral finance, investors' psychology and its aggregate effects on financial markets, and agent-based computational finance. After introducing the concepts, the classes will be largely based on discussion of individual papers.|
