Behavioral Economics: Understand What Shapes Decision-Making
Behavioral economics, a fairly new subfield of economics, uses concepts and tools from psychology and economics to understand human decision-making. In this course, students will leaern how cognitive, emotional, social, and cultural factors can impact decision-making and explain why decisions are often not rational, consistent, or, as predicted by traditional economic models, self-serving. Students will study how insights from behavioral economics have been used to promote pro-environmental and/or sustainable behavior.
