The summer school is intended to foster reflection on economic models of rational as well as bounded or irrational decision, focusing on their explanatory power as well as normative/policy implications.
The school consists of lectures, presentations, and tutorials. The invited speakers lecture on the topics related to the school’s general theme, while students have 30 minutes to present their papers. During tutorials, a faculty member discusses with a student her/his paper in a one-to-one 1-hour discussion.
Papers by students can address any topic in the philosophy, methodology, or history of economics, also a topic different from the summer school’s main theme.
Social activities include visits to Como, Torno (a village on the Lake of Como), plus various drinks and dinners.
The school will take place at Villa del Grumello, in Como, Italy, from June 26 (welcome drinks and registration, from 6.30 pm) to July 1 (end of school at 2.30 pm), 2022.
