Welcome to the Innsbruck Winter School 2019


The SFB (Special Research Unit) “Credence Goods, Incentives and Behavior” at the University of Innsbruck offered the second edition of the Innsbruck Winter School on Credence Goods, Incentives and Behavior from March 16-22, 2019. The course focused on theoretical, experimental and behavioral approaches towards analyzing the economic implications of credence goods and was taught mainly by Loukas Balafoutas and Rudolf Kerschbamer. In addition, special sessions on selected topics in Behavioral Economics/Finance were given by Matthias Sutter, Jürgen Huber, Michael Kirchler, and Markus Walzl.

The purpose of this course was to provide PhD students and PostDocs with the tools needed to analyze key determinants of individual behavior and market performance in credence goods markets (with a wide definition of credence goods), such as markets for health care, repair and legal services, as well as markets for financial advice and fund management.

Part of the program was the two-day workshop Innsbruck Winter Summit – (Un)Ethical Behavior in Markets. Keynotes were given by Anna Dreber-Almenberg (Stockholm School of Economics and University of Innsbruck), Martin Dufwenberg (University of Arizona and University of Gothenburg), George Loewenstein (Carnegie Mellon University), and Matthias Sutter (Max-Planck-Institute for Research on Collective Goods Bonn, University of Cologne and University of Innsbruck).
