Papers in experimental economics by Vernon L Smith( Book )

21 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Vernon L. Smith is a major creator of the new discipline of experimental economics. This collection of his papers from 1962 to 1990 surveys key developments in the field from early attempts to study economic behaviour in now classic double oral auction markets through recent studies of industrial organization and decision making. Topics covered include monopoly and oligopoly, supply and demand theory under posted pricing, uniform pricing, double continuous auction, and sealed bid-offer auctions; hypothetical valuation and market pricing; asset price bubbles; predatory pricing; market contestability and natural monopoly; and the methodology of experimental economics. Taken together, the papers form a history of the study of economics under controlled conditions
Handbook of experimental economics results by Charles R Plott( Book )

22 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Experimental methods in economics respond to circumstances that are not completely dictated by accepted theory or outstanding problems. While the field of economics makes sharp distinctions and produces precise theory, the work of experimental economics sometimes appear blurred and may produce results that vary from strong support to little or partial support of the relevant theory. At a recent conference, a question was asked about where experimental methods might be more useful than field methods. Although many cannot be answered by experimental methods, there are questions that can only be
Bargaining and market behavior : essays in experimental economics by Vernon L Smith( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The law and economics of irrational behavior( Book )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of collected essays explores the most relevant developments at the interface of economics and psychology, with special attention to models of irrational behavior, and draws the relevant implications of such models for the design of legal rules and institutions. The application of economic models of irrational behavior to law is especially challenging because specific departures from rational behavior differ markedly from one another. Furthermore, the analytical and deductive instruments of economic theory have to be reshaped to deal with the fragmented and heterogeneous findings of psychological research, lurning towards a more experimental and inductive methodology. This volume brings together scholars who are pioneering in this area, with a presentation of some of the most exciting developments in the field of legal and economic theory. Areas of application include criminal law and sentencing, tort law, contract law, corporate law, and financial markets

Economics of natural & environmental resources by Vernon L Smith( Book )

19 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First written in 1977, Economics of Natural and Environmental Resources presents a collection of articles written in exploration of the economic, social, and ecological problems peculiar to natural and environmental resources. Whilst focusing on the economic theory of natural resources, the contributions also consider geological, technological, and institutional features of particular resources. Policy implications and considerations are central to the text and although the book was published over thirty years ago, the issues discussed remain relevant to today's society
Rethinking housing bubbles : the role of household and bank balance sheets in modeling economic cycles by Steven D Gjerstad( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Balance sheet crises, in which the prices of widely held and highly leveraged assets collapse, pose distinctive economic challenges. An understanding of their causes and consequences is only recently developing, and there is no agreement on effective policy responses. From backgrounds in experimental economics, Steven Gjerstad and Nobel laureate Vernon L. Smith examine events that led to and resulted from the recent U.S. housing bubble and collapse, as a case study in the formation and propagation of balance sheet crises. They then examine all previous downturns in the U.S. economy, including the Great Depression, and document substantive differences between the recurrent features of economic cycles and financial crises and the beliefs that public officials hold about them, especially within the Federal Reserve System. They conclude with an examination of similar events in other countries and assess alternative strategies to contain financial crises and to recover from them.--

Who owns the environment? by Peter Jensen Hill( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past several decades have witnessed a growing recognition that environmental concerns are essentially property rights issues. Despite agreement that an absence of well-defined and consistently enforced property rights results in the exploitation of air, water, and other natural resources, there is still widespread disagreement about many aspects of America's property rights paradigm. The prominent contributors to Who Owns the Environment? explore numerous theoretical and empirical possibilities for remedying these problems. An important book for environmental economists and those intereste
