The annual Symposium on Economic Experiments in Developing Countries (SEEDEC), now in its eighth year, brings together a community of scholars who employ laboratory experimental economics methods for research in developing countries.

This year’s conference took place on Thursday, May 20th and Friday, May 31st at the University of California, Berkeley, and was organized jointly by the Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA) and the Experimental Social Science Laboratory (Xlab). The symposium featured papers from more than 25 researchers, as well as keynote addresses by Stefano DellaVigna, who talked about forecasting results, and how, surprisingly, vertical expertise doesn’t have obvious returns in terms of prediction, and Pam Jakiela, who reminded us that humans don’t always make rational choices, and how patterns of error can tell us a lot about human behavior.

Keynotes
