“Game Theoretic and Experimental Approaches to Public Economics”
In honor of the works of Jim Andreoni, Ted Bergstrom, Larry Blume, and Hal Varian
JPET is planning a special issue to commemorate 30 years since Bergstrom, Blume and Varian’s “ On the private provision of public goods,” and Andreoni’s papers on “Warm glow,” “Why free ride? Strategies and learning in public goods experiments”, and “Privately provided public goods in a large economy: The limits of altruism”. These papers were pioneering in advancing game theoretic and experimental research in public economics.
An APET workshop connected with the special issue will be held at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) from December 14th-17th. If requested, papers submitted to the special issue before October 1st will be considered for presentation at the workshop.
