Experimental Economics: Financial Markets, Auctions, And Decision Making is based on research presented at the 20th Arne Ryde Symposium on Experimental Economics, held on November 9-11 at Lund University. The volume is divided into two parts.
In Part I, interviews with prominent researchers in the field, all invited speakers at the Symposium, are presented. Those interviewed are Peter Bohm, Catherine Eckel, Werner Güth, John Hey, Daniel Kahneman, Alvin Roth, Vernon Smith, and Martin Weber. The interviews address important questions about basic experimental methods and the interpretation of results. In addition, these researchers answer questions relating to their specific fields and to their contributions at the Symposium. They are also asked to single out the most important findings in the field.
Part II contains selected contributions from the conference. Topics covered include attitudes towards risk and inequality; pitfalls in experimental economics; analysis of trading-period duration; robustness in learning; video experiments on decision making and fairness; sequential prisoners' dilemmas; and collusion in auctions.

Editorial Reviews

Andersson and Holm (both of Lund U., Sweden) present eight interviews and seven papers that focus on experimental economics and its recent results. The interviews were conducted with the invited lecturers at the November 2000 symposium, including Peter Bohm, Catherine Eckel, Werner G<:u>th, John Hey, Daniel Kahneman, Alvin Roth, Vernon Smith, and Martin Weber. The questions asked of interviewees were kept similar in theme in order to aid comparative examination. The topics covered in the papers include the effect of trading period duration, robust learning experiments, the impact of fairness in decision- making, the sequential prisoners' dilemma, and collusion in auctions.
