Economic Experiments at SF State

Economics computer lab

At the Department of Economics we conduct computerized economic experiments. Economics is not usually thought of as an experimental science. But in recent years the field of experimental economics has been experiencing explosive growth. Experiments allow economists to test their theories in the laboratory just like they do in physics and chemistry. At SF State, Prof. Kirill Chernomaz specializes in the field and conducts experiments at the Economics Computer Lab in HSS 147. Any SF State student can participate. Experiments usually take a couple of hours and participants are paid in cash (for details see the rules).
