Our Center and Laboratory
The CBPE includes a state-of-the art laboratory specially designed to study political and economic institutions. The lab is fitted with a network of computers for observing participants’ behavior in a variety of political and economic settings.
Lab experiments commonly use monetary incentives and the lab dis-allows deception to ensure participants’ behaviors result from the stated linkage between the choices and the payments in the experiment.
Professor Matthew Lebo is the Director of the Center for Behavioral Political Economy.
Assistant Professors Reuben Kline and Peter Descioli are the Co-Associate Directors of the CBPE.
