Topics in Behavioral Labor Economics

Topics in Behavioral Labor Economics

The course serves as a reading seminar that provides students with an overview of the latest trends in behavioral labor economics - an intersection of behavioral/experimental economics and labor economics - as well as an opportunity for an in-depth study of a topic of interest.

The course offers four topics that occupy a prominent place in the field: goal setting, loss aversion, gender differences, and peer effects. Each topic is represented by few recent papers published in top ranked journals. The students are given an option to select a paper from the menu and critically evaluate it by the means of giving an oral presentation and a written report.
