Course description
  ADVANCED TOPICS IN ECONOMIC THEORY

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2018-19

This course is an introduction to one of the most modern branches of economics, the theory of contest. Examples of contests are wars, trials, sports, prizes and political competition. In fact it can be considered as a resource allocation mechanism as important as the authority or the market. Only after the development of Game Theory has this branch of economics started to take shape.
