LBEG Seminar Wednesday 18 May: Matthias Sutter & Antonio Guarino

Published by:

The last London Behavioural and Experimental Group seminar of the academic year took place on Wednesday 18 May 2016, 5-7pm, at London School of Economics, Thai Theatre, New Academic Building, 54 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, WC2A 3LJ.

It was a very successful event with two wonderful speakers.

The invited speaker was Prof. Matthias Sutter (University of Cologne, University of Innsbruck) who talked about ‘Where to look for the morals in markets?’.

The London speaker was Prof. Antonio Guarino (UCL) who talked about ‘Updating ambiguous beliefs in a social learning experiment’.

Both talks were beautifully inspiring and engaging.
Matthias and Antonio presented two lab experiments that nicely combined theory, experimental design, and econometric analysis, two further brilliant demonstrations that theory, experiments, and econometrics are complementary, not substitute, tools for behavioural economists.

Thank you very much to Antonio and Matthias for such a ‘peak end effect’ for this LBEG academic year!

Thanks to everybody who has contributed to the LBEG initiatives this year and see you after the summer!
