The Boston Federal Reserve Bank is aiming to become the regional Fed that emphasizes behavioral economics (the oddly named subfield that emphasizes the intersection of economics and psychology). This past week, I attended a conference there on the topic.
Here is Janet Yellen's talk at the conference on "Implications of Behavioral Economics for Monetary Policy." (Thanks to Mark Thoma for the link.)
I am a professor and chairman of the economics department at Harvard University, where I teach introductory economics (ec 10). I use this blog to keep in touch with my current and former students. Teachers and students at other schools, as well as others interested in economic issues, are welcome to use this resource.
