About the Center
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 Reuben Kline is the Director of the Center for Behavioral Political Economy.
Professor Peter DeScioli is the Associate Director of the CBPE.
