Pre-conference seminar - Academic track
 

Hosted by Georgia State University - Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk (CEAR) (separate registration required)

The purpose of this session was to review recent advances in experimental methodologies for evaluating the demand for insurance and risk management, as well as the welfare evaluation of microinsurance products. The pre-conference included participation in pedagogic experiments designed to demonstrate some of the themes, with a particular emphasis on the demand for index insurance. Participants received a “hands on” experience of what these experiments involve, as well as a discussion covering the design and analysis of the experiment they were involved in.
