About the event: Behavioral economics (BE) investigates a broad range of topics at the intersection of economics and psychology. BE posits that economic agents' preferences are, to a large extent, non-selfish. The mini-lecture on BE will briefly discuss the evidence accumulated over about five decades around the globe on a few fundamental economic games that have become an integral part of any introductory course in BE. The hope is to familiarize the audience with what all economics in its current state can explore.
