Economic Theory

Program Director(s)

Overview

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.

Seminars

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 an integral and indispensable part of the intellectual communication in microeconomic theory.
