Behavioral Economics – ECON 406 added to winter schedule

We are fortunate to be able to offer a course in Behavioral Economics this winter! ECON 406 – Undergraduate Seminar will be focused on Behavioral Economics!

Description:
This course seeks to incorporate insights from psychology into economic models. We will review a number of insights from psychology, carefully examining evidence on systematic departures from traditional economic approaches. We will modify the classical assumptions to be more realistic, write down models that generate sharp and testable predictions, and explore the economic implications of those models. By the end of the course, students will learn how psychology and economics can be used together to understand human behavior, as well as know how to incorporate behavioral ideas to shape markets and policy.

Prerequisite: 2.0 in ECON 300

ECON 406A

Sln 22320

MW 5:00-6:50pm

CMU 228

This Week – Tech Policy Lab Distinguished Lecture with James Suzman, Nov 2, Kane Hall, 7pm

I wanted to let you know about an event the Tech Policy Lab has later this week – James Suzman will give the Lab’s Fall Distinguished Lecture, "Poison Arrows and Other ‘Killer Apps’: A Hunter-Gatherer Perspective on Technology and Our Future." James Suzman is an anthropologist who specializes in the political economy of southern Africa; his lecture will explore how a better understanding of sustainable hunter-gatherer societies might help us better respond to social and economic impacts of modern technology, as well as broader sustainability challenges.

—Distinguished Lecture with James Suzman, Nov 2, Kane Hall, 7p—

Please join the Tech Policy Lab next week as we welcome James Suzman as our Distinguished Lecturer on November 2nd to speak on a hunter-gatherer perspective on technology and our future, exploring how a better understanding of sustainable hunter-gatherer societies might help us respond to social and economic impacts of modern technology, as well as broader sustainability challenges. More information is available here.

Tech Policy Lab Fall Distinguished Lecture:

Poison Arrows and Other “Killer Apps”: A Hunter-Gather Perspective on Technology and Our Future with James Suzman

Thursday, November 2, 2017, 7-8:30p

Kane Hall 120, University of Washington, Free

RSVP Requested: Register Here

From James Suzman’s recent book, Affluence without Abundance: The Disappearing World of the Bushmen:

“The speed of the Ju/’hoansi’s transformation from an isolated group of closely related hunting and gathering bands to a marginalized minority struggling to survive in a rapidly changing polyglot modern state is almost without parallel in modern history. And as bewildering as this process has been for the Ju/’hoansi, it has bestowed upon them a special, if ephemeral, double perspective on the modern world—one that comes from being in one world but of another; from being part of a modern nation-state yet simultaneously excluded from full participation in it; and from having to engage with modernity with the hands and hearts of hunter-gatherers.”

Please contact halmeter with any questions.
