Topic: Behavioral Public Policypeter_matthews_at_old_chapel.jpg

In this brief and informal talk, I will share a few examples of recent work with various collaborators that use experimental and/or behavioral methods to explore a range of public policy questions. I’ll also discuss the long-term research project on inequality I am starting here in Finland, a new behavioral initiative in Vermont and, perhaps most important, moderate what I hope will be a productive conversation about the future of such research, both at Hanken and in Finland!
