About Economic Science
Starting in June 2014, my goal on this website is to make past work available and to discuss current research and writing projects.
I am currently working with Peter Cramton, Axel Ockenfels and Andreas Pollak on international climate change negotiations. In particular Andreas is conducting negotiation experiments at Axel’s Cologne Laboratory for Economic Research. Results will be reported here: climate experiment. As a member of the Editorial Board of the Economics of Energy and Environmental Policy journal I convince the Journal to devote the first half of their Sept. 2015 issue to Climate Negotiations. The three of us have no recruited Stiglitz, Weitzman, Tirole and Arrow to contribute.
I am also beginning some work in behavioral economics. In particular I would like to show that a modification of the ERC and FS hypotheses concerning utility functions can be substantiated experimentally and hence provide a foundation for Frank’s critique of the fundamental theorems of welfare economics.
