The proposed course is an introduction to the theory and practice of experimental economics, with a special focus on the behavioral analysis of: 1. Individual (and interactive) decision making under risk and ambiguity. 2. Risk, time and social preferences;. 3. Behavioral Finance. Since the ultimate goal is to design and run economic experiments, we shall complement the review of the existing experimental literature on these themes with a survey on methodological and design issues, together with a review of some popular statistical tools used to analyze behavioral data.
