About the Lecture:
Field experiments have recently gained more prominence among academicians in Economics. Insights gleaned from field experiments play an important complementary role to inferences drawn from analysis of secondary data for policy formulation purposes. The seminar will emphasize the importance of field experiments in social science. It will discuss the essential components of a field experiment and highlight the differences between lab experiments and field studies. Also, it will explore the different fields of study in economics that are best suited to field experiments. Particularly, China’s unique socioeconomic background provides us a great platform to do field experiment research. The seminar will also highlight the entrepreneurship studies we are working on in China using field experiments.
