报告题目：The History of Decision under Risk and Ambiguity--Leading to Modern Experimental Economics
This lecture describes the current state of the art in modeling risk and ambiguity attitudes as the result of interactions between empirically oriented psychologists and theoretically oriented economists, leading to modern experimental economics. At several stages in history, the next step forward could be made only by empirical inputs and intuitions from psychologists. At several other stages, the next step forward could be made only by theoretical inputs from economists with advanced technical skills. Modern views on the measurement of utility, beliefs, risk, and ambiguity attitudes could only arise from the merger of ideas from all the fields mentioned. It was primarily this development in risk and ambiguity that has led to the behavioral approach that now pervades in all economic disciplines. The lecture ends with speculations on future directions of risk and ambiguity studies and their implications for other economic disciplines.
