BEAM - ABEE Workshop

Experimental and Behavioral Analyses in Macroeconomics and Finance

24 and 25 August 2018, Amsterdam School of Economics, University of Amsterdam. Local organizers: Kevin Koenrades, Dávid Kopányi and Jan Tuinstra.

In recent years an increasing number of researchers in the field of macroeconomics and finance have started using behavioral modelling and laboratory experiments. This approach has, for example, been useful in studying the dynamics of expectations, describing the occurrence of bubbles and crashes in financial markets and understanding the mechanism behind the effects of various policy interventions.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers that use behavioral modelling and laboratory experiments to address questions related to macroeconomics and finance.
