 Decision making is at the heart of economics: production, exchange, and consumption are all the result of choices made by individual agents. For over sixty years, the benchmark framework for studying agents' decisions whose consequences are uncertain has been the expected utility model. But anomalies from experimental work in psychology and behavioral economics have led to revisions of expected utility and of utility theory more generally. The Summer School will explore both the standard model and some of the most important alternatives

Here's the program (Manny Yaari speaks about Newcomb's paradox on the last day, although he's not listed as one of the 'lecturers'...)
