SABE/IAREP/ICABEEP 2013 Conference
July 25, 2013 – July 29, 2013
Clayton State University
Bringing Economics and Psychology together in the Wake of the Financial Crisis
In the wake of the financial crisis, economists who’ve been calling bubbles wish they knew a bit more of people’s psychology; psychologists are eager to fine-tune and make adoptable economists’ tools of analysis; in business schools treating risk have always involved a mix of econ-psych with variable proportions … Today many of us have the same goal. We want to generate knowledge for the good society to avoid another crisis… We aspire to define finance as the stewardship of society's assets... What can we learn from each other?
This conference is one of the biennial meetings of the two largest organizations in the fields of behavioral economics (SABE) and economic psychology (IAREP). The conference, run in conjunction with ICABEEP (an umbrella organization for behavioral economics and economic psychology), attracts scholars from the fields of psychology, economics, management, marketing, consumer behavior and other related fields.
Glenn Harrison, CEAR's Director, was a keynote speaker at the conference. CEAR also provided some funding for the conference.Workshop Website
