Hotelling Lecture
Stochastic Choice
Speaker: Tomasz Strzalecki (Harvard University)
These lectures will discuss various models that generate stochastic choices. Randomness in choice is motivated both theoretically (since it naturally appears as a consequence of evolving utility, information, or attention) as well as empirically (since individual choices typically exhibit variability, both in experimental and field data). I will mostly discuss the recently flourishing literature in decision theory, but I will also make connections to the closely related discrete choice literature in econometrics. Both static and dynamic models will be discussed.
