Special Panel Session
The Art of Experimental Economics:  Past, Present, and Future

On Friday, October 29th, we will have a special panel discussion on the book The Art of Experimental Economics.

In a recent book, The Art of Experimental Economics, many of the top scholars in experimental economics provide reviews of twenty of the most important papers to have been published in experimental economics, with the goal of highlighting the power and methods of experimental economics.  In this ESA Tucson Panel discussion, six panelists provide some focused comments on their views of the past, present, and future of experimental economics.  Their comments will be followed by a brief Q&A time.

Panelists: Catherine Eckel, John List, Rosemarie Nagel, Charles Plott, Uri Gneezy, and John Kagel.

Panel Moderator:  Gary Charness
