Research Seminar Behavioral Economics – Some Issues and Controversies

ISM kindly invites to participate in Research Seminar "Behavioral Economics – Some Issues and Controversies" led by Slavisa Tasic, professor of economics, researcher and policy writer.
Seminar will take place on the 23rd of October, 10:00, room 501.


Behavioral economics has received much praise and experienced great success in the past two decades. Nevertheless, parts of behavioral economics remain problematic from both theoretical and policy point of view. As a theory, behavioral economics may be criticized for its excessive reliance on the neoclassical economic model as a normative ideal. As a set of policy prescriptions, behavioral economics focuses on market participants and neglects various cognitive and behavioral imperfections on the side of policymakers. In this talk I will summarize my research that has addressed such concerns and discuss a way forward for behavioral economics.
