About this book


Experimental Economics has experienced a steadily growing interest by economists during the last decade. This may not surprise since laboratory and field experiments obviously provide a further valuable source of empirical evidence of economic behavior besides statistics, econometrics, polls, interviews and simulations. In an overview of the recent developments in Experimental Economics, the present book concentrates on three central themes standing in the actual research focus: bargaining, cooperation and election markets. For each one of these topics the volume presents several state-of-the-art survey articles by experts in the field, accompanied by detailed comments. While the experimental approach sheds new light on the microeconomic standard topics of bargaining and cooperation, the election market approach as a new field may provide better forecasts for political elections - and for soccer World Championships.

From the reviews:

"Friedel Bolle and Marco Lehmann-Waffenschmidt have gathered eight surveys, written by leaders in the field of experimental economics. Their volume provides both naive and experienced experimentalists with an overview of the major findings in these areas, as well as a roadmap for future research in the field. … by pointing out areas that require further research, the volume provides a starting point for researchers newly interested in experimental methods." (Robert J. Oxoby, Eastern Economic Journal, Summer, 2005)
