Symposia (Fall 2022)

  • Date: October 12, 2022
    Time: 9:05 am - 12:05 pm
    Location: Burruss Building 152

    Featuring a Keynote by Nobel Laureate Vernon Smith (Chapman University)

    Economists use laboratory experiments to collect data and test theories in controlled settings. By studying how people respond to the incentives in place, make choices, and behave based on the experiment's structure, they can get a better understanding of how markets and other types of economic systems can be designed to improve their outcomes. The Bagwell Center’s “Symposium on Experimental Economics” will provide an overview of the main ideas of this academic field, explaining the methods of analysis and noting important applications across diverse disciplines.
