Applied Experimental Economics: Environment and Energy

This is a course for the Master EEDD on energy, envronment and sustainable development of the Université Grenoble-Alpes. It is an introduction to the experimental method and a review of its application to the environment (most lectures) and to electricity prices (some examples).

Lecture 1 — why experiments? — slidesprintout

Lecture 2 — value elicitation: BDM and auctions — slidesprintout

Lecture 3 — tragedy of the commoncs and public goods — slidesprintout

Lecture 4 — markets: double auctions, externalities, trade — slidesprintout

Lecture 5 — consumer behavior: rationality, biases, nudges — slidesprintout

Lecutre 6 — experimental design & confounds — slidesprintout

Introduction to R and the tidyverse

This is a course for the Master C2ES (Chargé d’Etudes Economiques et Statistiques) of the Université Grenoble-Alpes. It is a basic introduction to the tidyverse — the impressive set of R packages developed by Hadley Wickham. Most topics and examples are a transposition of what is done (mush better) on the R for data science website — but some are new. The slides themselves are made with R, using knitr.

Lecture 0 — why R, why the tidyverse, workflow — slides

Lecture 1 — plotting with ggplot2slides

Lecture 2 — data manipulation with dplyrslides

Lecture 3 — tidy data with tidyrslides

Lecture 4 — hands-on exercises using the eurostat package — slides (in French) — R code

Advanced microeconomics

I was TA for Microeconomics at Economics and Political Studies in Milano – Statale with Prof. Franco Donzelli in Spring Term 2009 and 2010. The slides are made up of a quick summary of the relevant theory and a bunch of exercises. The main textbook used is Mas-Colell, Whinston and Green, ‘Microeconomic Theory’. Exercises and solutions owe much to the work of the authors as well as to the help of Prof. Donzelli. Typos and small mistakes can be present here and there, and they are entirely mine.

All the lectures are made up of a problem set and its solution. The solution comes in two forms: slides and handout. The embedded graphics are mainly done in Inkscape and can be downloaded separately from the companion Plots and Graphs page. The .tex sources are available upon request. Just send me an email.

Lecture 1 – Preferences and W.A.R.P. – problem sethandoutslides

Lecture 2 – Budget set and demand I – problem sethandoutslides

Lecture 3 – Demand II, Cobb-Douglas – problem sethandoutslides

Lecture 4 – Duality – problem sethandoutslides

Lecture 5 – Production – problem set handoutslides

Lecture 6 – Edgeworth box – problem sethandoutslides

Lecture 7 – Robinson Crusoe 1×1 economy – problem set handoutslides

Games and Strategy

I was TA for Games and Strategy with Prof. Marco Scarsini in LUISS during Spring Term 2010. The course was an introduction to game theory. The slides cover static and dynamic games with perfect information. The main textbook was Osborne, Rubinstein, ‘An Introduction to Game Theory’. Exercises and solutions owe much to the work of the Authors as well as to the help of Prof. Scarsini. Typos and small mistakes can be present here and there, and they are entirely mine.

All the lectures are made up of some slides exposing some theory and used as a support for solving exercises. Solutions are not complete; sometimes only the support graphics are present. The embedded graphics are mainly done in Inkscape and can be downloaded separately from the companion Plots and Graphs page. The .tex sources are available upon request. Just send me an email.

Lecture 1 – Prisoner Dilemma, Nash Equilibrium, Oligopoly I – slides

Lecture 2 – Mixed Strategies – slides

Lecture 3 – Extensive Games, Stackelberg Oligopoly, Ultimatum Game – slides

Lecture 4 – Repeated games – slides

Lecture 5 – Bargaining I: Rubinstein, Nash – slides

Lecture 6 – Bargaining II: Nash, Allais paradox, Kalai-Smorodinsky- slides

Lecture 7 – Core – slides

Microeconomia per la Finanza

I was TA for Microeconomia per la Finanza in LUISS with Prof. Daniela Di Cagno in Spring Term 2010. The course was on microecnomics and behavioural finance. Exercises and solutions owe much to the help of Prof. Di Cagno. Typos and small mistakes can be present here and there, and they are entirely mine. Slides and lecture notes are in Italian.

Lecture 1 – Utilità attesa, attitudine al rischio – slides

Lecture 2 – Aste – slides

Lecture 3 – Bayesian updating – slides

One thought on “Teaching

  1. Dear sir,

    Living in Reggio Emilia (former prof at the Eindhoven Technical University) I am trying to help in a catholic parochiale organisation (San Pellegrino di Don Giuseppe Dossetti), we are very interested in micro-economics as a possible medium to helping out people with no work nor income. Are you an organisation that could inform us about new micro economics in Italy? Or can you inform us where to address ourselves? We are believing in this new concepts of re-validation and small initiatives with micro-economics and we would like to start up somethimng also here in Reggio Emilia.

    Thanx a lot!
