Economics 201C Segment on Behavioral Game Theory (first half, co-taught with Joel Sobel), Spring 2009

Instructor: Professor Vincent Crawford (vcrawfor@dss.ucsd.edu, 858-534-3452)

Office hours: Wednesdays 2:00-3:00 or by appointment, in Economics 319

Lectures: Mondays, March 30 and April 6, 13, 20, and 27, from 5:00 to 7:50 pm in Economics 304

Organization: The only requirement for my segment, aside from attendance, will be an in-class final in the second half of the last (April 27) class. One of the questions on the semi-final will be your choice of one of the questions from Practice Problems 12 or 13. These questions are meant to help you think about how to use behavioral game theory to do economics; its choices give you some freedom to focus on the kind of economics you like.

The date of the exam is firm, except in case of severe, unforeseeable events, in which case exceptions must be requested as soon as possible, and before the deadline.
Your grade for 201C will be an aggregate of your grades for Joel's and my parts.
