Current Research Activities

My research interests stretch over the fields of experimental and behavioral economics, and economic history. Broadly speaking, through the fusion of economic history and laboratory experiments, I am interested in delineating the role of culture, religion, and institutions in the process of economic decision-making. This relatively new blend of economic history and experimental economics shows great promise for the empirical study of historical episodes. With this approach in mind, I have focused my attention on the role of culture in historical patterns of economic development.  For example, in a couple of research papers I study the effect of individualistic versus collectivistic orientation, which is the most significant cultural difference between Eastern and Western societies, on economic decision-making.
