Course Description

ECON 150
Strategic Behavior
Spring

This course applies game theory and behavioral economics toward understanding strategic decision-making. A major theme of the course is that game theory describes how people should behave in order to achieve certain objectives, while behavioral economics highlights many ways in which actual behavior deviates from what is individually optimal—primarily because of cognitive limitations and perceptual biases. By investigating these two fields of study, the course provides fundamental insights into human motivation and interaction in markets, politics, and everyday life.
