Behavioral economics and behavioral finance typically incorporate cognitive and social factors in modeling economic decisions. These include decisions made by the buyers and sellers of insurance-related products. The nascent field of behavioral insurance attempts to explain many of the discrepancies between theories and observations within insurance markets.
The workshop is organized in order to further promote and enrich the discipline. It will give researchers the opportunity to present their work and exchange ideas on the topic. It will be hosted by the Munich Risk and Insurance Center (MRIC) at Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, Germany, and organized by Andreas Richter and Jörg Schiller. It will take place on December 15th and 16th 2014. Submissions of abstracts and full papers are welcome.
This workshop is in cooperation with the Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk (CEAR) at Georgia State University.
