In this project, I wish to broaden the definitions of equilibrium concepts to take into account the cognitive limitations of player ...

"Development Economics has seen an explosion of high quality empirical work in the past ten years. But despite the quality of many individual researchers, Europe is lagging behind the US in terms of number of students, faculty, and publications. Remedying this gap is important, not only for scientific reasons, but also because development research is a critical input to decision making by Governme ...
