This module aims to introduce students to the principles of a new and exciting area of economics that has had an enormous impact both on modern economic theory and practical policy making. Behavioural Economics integrates psychological insights together with the experimental method to gain insights into both big social processes such as the cooperation, altruism and trust but also policy oriented ideas that have an influence on how people live.
