Economics

The cost of summer courses varies from school to school. Courses at more elite colleges and universities cost considerably more than those at smaller or state schools. The cost is also dependent on the number of courses a student enrolls in.

Those who study economics first and foremost learn the differences between microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics involves the behavior of individual markets, such as households and firms, and their interactions. Macroeconomics, on the other hand, involves looking at the entire economy as a whole.

The first class will introduce you to money’s contested histories, exploring how histories of barter have been placed against histories of debt and what this means for how money functions in contemporary economies. The second class will introduce you to the ways in which artists and writers have imagined alternative forms of money, exploring examples from counterfeiting to the gift economy. The final class explores what money means in our contemporary moment: analysing the social relations, and problems, that digital money brings. [+]

Barcelona Microeconometrics Summer School

Barcelona Graduate School of Economics
Campus Part time 5 - 10 days September 2018 Spain Barcelona

Given the strong methodological and empirical nature of the course methodology, candidates to take this Summer School include: Researchers and professionals from public institutions (economists from ministries of economy, labor, industry, etc.,) or private institutions (economists from the research departments of financial firms or consultants) whose work requires the handling and treatment of individual data. PhD and master students in economics (or in the social sciences) who intend to or are in the process of preparing dissertations with an empirical component that requires an econometric treatment of individual data. Holders of undergraduate degrees in economics or the social sciences who wish to round out their background in quantitative topics that have a general and/or specific applicability. [+]

The increasing availability of individual data from surveys has led not only to a significant growth in the number of academic jobs of an empirical nature using this type of information but also to a greater number of studies commissioned by public and private institutions in which this type of data is used.

The characteristics of this type of data are such that statistical and econometric techniques appropriate for their treatment have a specific nature, generally differentiated from those appropriate for time series data. The qualitative nature of most of the information, the representativity of the samples used, the censoring issues associated to the dependent variables are, among others, some of the aspects that distinguish these techniques from an econometric perspective....

“… I have begun to be somewhat merry because I have been told that that is good for one’s health.” (Voltaire, Letter to the Abbé Trublet, 1761)

This program is designed to provide an overview of facts, questions, and models at the frontier of research in health economics and economics of well-being. Health and well-being are closely related concepts. Indeed, economists often use self-reported measures of well-being as a proxy for utility. In this approach, well-being is considered as an aggregate of satisfactions in several domains, including mental and physical health, but also income, social life, housing, and leisure, in particular. Interestingly, among these domains, people give a disproportionate weight to health and income in well-being. For this reason, health and well-being need to be studied together.... [-]


EXPERIMENTAL ECONOMICS - Empirical tools and methods to investigate economic behavior

Paris School of Economics
Campus Full time 5 days June 2018 France Paris

The objective of this program is to offer a crash course in experimental methods and techniques aimed at understanding economic behavior: how to design, implement and analyze an experiment so to answer a research question. The Professors will discuss the following topics: general methodology (theory, validity, lab and field, replication, and purposes), tools (incentives, risk and time, design and instructions, software, physiological measures, experimetrics,etc.) and applications (case study and participants’ projects). [+]

While experiments have been considered for long as a specific domain within economics (“experimental economics”), the experimental method is now widely considered as a tool among others in the typical economist’s toolbox. Its use has shed light on many areas, on the theoretical side (decision theory, game theory, markets) as on the more applied and descriptive ones (policy, development, labor econ., IO, health econ., etc.). It has led to the blossoming of “behavioral economics”, but its general relevance goes much deeper than that. The purpose of this program is to provide young researchers with the methodological skills required to pursue experiments in their own research, with a strong focus on lab experiment.... [-]


DEVELOPMENT - Inequality, social interactions, and institutional dynamics in development

Paris School of Economics
Campus Full time 5 days June 2018 France Paris

The programme approaches these questions by drawing on formal theory and rigorous empirical research in two core modules: “Inequality and development” and “Institutions and Social Frictions”. In addition, three shorter modules develop empirical applications of the core course themes. These modules cover the role of historical legacies, conflict, corruption, and media in economic development. [+]

Institutions and social frictions (associated with inequalities, political conflicts, corruption, and cultural polarization) have emerged as central themes in development economics. This course takes stock of existing research and moves on to draw the outline of the current research frontier. How do institutions shape the development process?

How do understudied informal institutions, such as identities and customs, interact with formal institutions? How do we interpret recent trends in inequality within low- and middle-income countries? What do these trends teach us about institutions and development?

The programme approaches these questions by drawing on formal theory and rigorous empirical research in two core modules: “Inequality and development” and “Institutions and Social Frictions”. In addition, three shorter modules develop empirical applications of the core course themes. These modules cover the role of historical legacies, conflict, corruption, and media in economic development. The objective of the programme is to equip you with the background and tools you need as a researcher to contribute to this dynamic field.... [-]
