MW24.4 - Seminar Quantitative Economics - Master Program in Economics

In this seminar we explore topical questions from empirical, experimental, and quantitative economics.

In some seminars we study the psychological and behavioural factors that influence individual and collective decision-making. We want to understand how individuals and groups react to their environment, how they assess future events, the welfare of other individuals, and other non-tangible goods, how they deal with risk and how and when they cooperate. These methods can help us to develop and to assess interventions that support sustainable behaviour and that encourage pro-social behaviour.

In some seminars we focus on empirical inference. Empirical inference is essential to understand the effectiveness and the cost and the benefits of policies. Empirical inference also help predicting the development and the dynamics of an environment over time and, thus, help us make informed decisions.
