The purpose of this SITE workshop is to bring together researchers working on issues at the intersection of psychology and economics. The workshop focuses on evidence of and explanations for non-standard choice patterns, as well as the positive and normative implications of those patterns in important economic decision-making contexts such as lifecycle consumption and savings, labor supply, effort provision, financial contracting, and firm pricing. Many past presenters at this workshop have built upon insights from other disciplines, including psychology and sociology. Theoretical, empirical, and experimental studies will be included.
