This seminar regularly takes place in the winter term and is taught entirely in English. Usually it takes place at the Westend campus of Goethe University Frankfurt.

After presenting papers, students are encouraged to develop a research idea in the respective area and present it in class. To earn credit, students need to also submit a written research proposal.

Winter term 2019-20: The Economics of Beliefs

Time and Place:
8.30am-12pm
in room RuW 4.201
on October 24, 31, November 7, 21, 28, December 12, and January 23.

In this seminar, we will discuss the diverse conceptual and operational forms and applications of "beliefs" in theoretical and empirical economic research. Based on a broad set of literature predominantly located within the field of behavioral economics, we will work towards a better understanding of the commonalities and differences of these varying approaches. Ultimately, this should serve as the basis of developing own research ideas.

A list of available papers for presentation will be distributed in the first meeting.
