SABE/IAREP/ICABEEP conference, Atlanta, Georgia, USA, July 25-29, 2013

In the wake of the financial crisis, economists who’ve been calling bubbles wish they knew a bit more of people’s psychology; psychologists are eager to fine-tune and make adoptable economists’ tools of analysis; in business schools treating risk have always involved a mix of econ-psych with variable proportions … Today many of us have the same goal. We want to generate knowledge for the good society to avoid another crisis… We aspire to define finance as the stewardship of society's assets... What can we learn from each other?

This conference is one of the biennial meetings of the two largest organizations in the fields of behavioral economics (SABE) and economic psychology (IAREP). The conference, run in conjunction with ICABEEP (an umbrella organization for behavioral economics and economic psychology), attracts scholars from the fields of psychology, economics, management, marketing, consumer behavior and other related fields. Contact Program Chairs, Shabnam Mousavi (shabnam@jhu.edu) or Reza Kheirandish (rkheiran@clayton.edu) for more information.
