The 2011 Behavioral Economics Conference will be a single-track event with 10 experts and a poster session addressing data relevant to translational research in behavioral economics. A chief insight of behavioral economics is that behavior is always subject to constraints—restricted income, limited options, and incomplete and uncertain information about the world—and that our theories need to take such factors into account. ABAI is offering a subject area tutorial, titled Behavioral Economics Primer, to cover topics such as demand curves, open/closed economies, essential value, the substitute to complement continuum, delay discounting, and some of the translational value of these concepts and findings.
