Hands-On Economics

Wonders of human decision behaviour

Are you fascinated by the complexities of human choices? Do you want to know why some humans gamble and at the same time take insurances? Why are we sometimes impatient, but at the same time we procrastinate dirty tasks? When do humans co-operate with or trust others, even when they interact in complete anonymity? Why do humans give to charity?

In this project (possibly one coming from a New Zealand governmental research group) you will be both experimenter and participant when we jointly explore the wonders of human decision behaviour and its impact on social outcomes and public policy.
