Project Details


The International Foundation for Research in Experimental Economics (IFREE) was set up by the Nobel Laureate Vernon Smith after whom our MGSM Experimental Economics Lab is named. This application is to conduct research with a couple of University of Alaska- Anchorage (UAA) folks. The idea for the research originated during my sabbatical at UAA.

IFREE, as the donor, have a policy that they do not pay any overheads.

Even though the amount is not huge, it is a very prestigious grant as the IFREE award only a few grants each year, but pretty much everyone in the experimental economics community around the globe would like to have this grant on a CV.
