Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Lobbying and corruption are features, to a greater or lesser degree, of all human societies, determining a wide range of political and economic outcomes. This course will introduce a game theoretic approach to the study of these important topics, and discuss evidence from both laboratory and field experiments.

A basic knowledge of game theory and microeconomics will be assumed.

Assessment and permitted materials

Homework Assignment (25%):
This assignment will be available after the lecture on 02/12/14 and due before class on 13/01/15. It will consist of mathematical/game theory problems.
Because I will be explaining answers in class on that date, no late assignments will be accepted.

Presentation/Assignment (30%):
Whether or not this takes the form of a presentation or written assignment will be decided in the third week, depending on the number of students in the class. The due date will be 13/01/15. Details will be posted later.

Final Exam (45%):
The final exam will be held on 27/01/15 during class time.
The exam will consist of some problems and short-answer/multiple choice questions.
The examinable material will all be contained in the class slides (which will be available online).
