|Description:||7th Mannheim Empirical Research Summer School|
|Subject:||The importance of empirical methods applied to micro (household or firm) data, and the use of experimental methods to obtain new insights into micro behavior, has been emphasized most prominently by the Nobel Prizes in Economics to James Heckman and Daniel McFadden in 2000, and to Vernon Smith in 2002 (the latter together with Daniel Kahneman, for the closely related field of Behavioral Economics). Yet, graduate teaching still neglects these important fields, and in particular the close links that exist between econometrics and experimental methods. The Mannheim Emprical Research Summer School (MERSS) aims at closing this gap - six leading contributors to these fields will both present participants with some basic facts and present their personal views and research agendas. Arthur van Soest and Vassilis Hajivassiliou will introduce econometric methods tailored to specific data generation processes. Urs Fischbacher, Dan Houser, Charles Noussair, and David Laibson will give a introduction into experimental and behavioral economics and allow participants to elaborate on the design of experiments. In addition, participants are invited (yet not required) to present their research as well. [gemäß den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]|
