Behavioural game theory: how real people think in strategic interactions

Vincent Crawford, then of the University of California, San Diego, talks to Romesh Vaitilingam about the research programme of behavioural game theory, which uses economic theory and lab experiments to make the analysis of strategic behaviour more like the way real people think and therefore potentially more applicable. The interview was recorded at the annual congress of the European Economic Association in Milan in August 2008.
