Economic Theory

Microeconomic Theory at Yale is characterized by a large faculty and comprehensive course offerings across all specializations, foremost among them decision theory, game theory, and general equilibrium theory. The Cowles Foundation is supporting a Research Program in Microeconomic Theory which hosts every year a number of long-term visitors.


A central element of the research environment in microeconomic theory are the:

  • Micro Theory Lunch (Tuesday, 12:00 - 1:00 pm)
  • Microeonomic Theory Workshop (Wednesday, 2:30 - 4:00 pm)

both of which are integral and indispensable parts of intellectual communication in microeconomic theory.
