Economics serving society

(June 5-7) Risk, Uncertainty and Decision 2019, at PSE

This year D-TEA (Decision: Theory, Experiments, Applications) and RUD (Risk, Utility, and Decision) collocate at the Paris School of Economics, over the week of June 3-7, 2019. D-TEA, which has an annual theme, will focus on Ambiguity (aka Knightian Uncertainty), and both conferences will honor David Schmeidler on his 80th birthday.

Partners: ANR (investissement d’avenir), Cergy-Pontoise University, Paris School of Economics
