Experimental Economics II:Theory and Experiments in Political Economy National Taiwan University
In this course, we will take a formal look at various environments where a group of individuals (committee, society, congress, etc.) makes a decision through some institutional mechanism (consensus, elections, jury deliberations, legislative bargaining etc.). These environments often coincide with real-world political institutions which we will study with the tools of (non-cooperative) game theory and experimental economics. We will try to critically understand varied aspects of political institutions through the lens of formal models in political economy.
This course is designed to provide a starting point for research in formal Political Theory and Political Economy. The course will also be of use to students who are interested in microeconomic theory and experimental economics.
Microeconomic theory at a graduate level. Game theory will also be used to study political problems.
