Along with Ernst Fehr of the University of Zurich, and Mike Woodford of Columbia University, I founded and am currently involved with a three-year program exploring the attentional and perceptual foundations of economic behavior.
This project, sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and Nomis Foundation, seeks to facilitate and energize interdisciplinary research linking psychological, neural, and behavioral aspects of attention and perception with microeconomic behavior and macroeconomic outcomes. The goal of this program is to help facilitate, shape and energize this process of unification of psychological, behavioral, and economic principles. Through a series of workshops, symposia, and summer schools, the program aims to build a research community working to link psychological, neural, and behavioral aspects of attention and perception with individual and aggregate economic behavior.
