I have an upcoming conference presentation at the AAEA meetings

I'll be at the AAEA Annual Meetings in Washington DC next week.

I'll be presenting at a session I helped organize called: Deception in Economic Experiments: History, Benefit-Cost Analysis, and Recommendations

Here's the description:

Whether deception should ever be allowed in social science experiments is controversial. Some fields, like psychology, embrace deception as a tool. Economists, however, have been slower to embrace deception in experiments, and the AJAE recently instituted a policy where they will not publish results from economics experiments where deception was used. In this session, we bring together several experimental economists to discuss this issue. The presentations will include a history of the use of deception in non-economic experimental work, a review of economists arguing against allowing deception in experimental auctions, and a review of economists arguing for deception in experimental auctions. Finally, our discussants will discuss the other presentations and will help provide an answer to the question: “When, if ever, should deception be used in experimental economics?”
