Recommended Courses

We will apply both theoretical models, experimental studies, and empirical evaluations. Therefore, a profound knowledge of microeconomic theory (e.g. Microeconomics I & II) and empirical research (Statistic 1 & II, Empirical Economics I), which can also be attended in the same semester is required. Further, knowledge of experimental economics is desirable. Applied empirical methods that go beyond a linear regression model (OLS) will be discussed briefly in the course.
