Our research strengths are in dynamic macroeconomics, choice theory, bounded rationality, game theory, expectations and learning, competition and innovation and climate change. We support two research centres - the Centre for Dynamic Macroeconomic Analysis (CDMA) and the Centre for Research in Industry, Enterprise, Finance and the Firm (CRIEFF), and we are also actively involved in the Scottish Institute for Research in Economics (SIRE).

  • (Hemi)Continuity of additive preference preorders 

    Gerasimou, Georgios (2015-05) - Journal article
    It is shown that the two common notions of topological continuity for preference preorders, which require closed contour sets and a closed graph respectively, are equivalent even when completeness is not assumed, provided ...
  • Robust sequential search 

    Schlag, Karl; Zapechelnyuk, Andriy (University of St Andrews, 2017-12-04) - Working or discussion paper
    A searcher explores alternatives sequentially and is unaware of the distribution of values of unexplored alternatives. We are interested in decision rules that perform close to Bayesian optimal ones under any prior, at ...
  • Persuasion meets delegation 

    Kolotilin, Anton; Zapechelnyuk, Andriy (University of St Andrews, 2018-04-07) - Working or discussion paper
    There are two common ways for a principal to influence the decision making of an agent. One is to manipulate the agent's information (persuasion problem). Another is to limit the agent's decisions (delegation problem). We ...
  • Prices and deadweight loss in multiproduct monopoly 

    Amir, Rabah; Jin, Jim Yongtao; Pech, Gerald; Tröge, Michael (2016-06) - Journal article
    The paper investigates prices and deadweight loss in multiproduct monopoly with linear interrelated demand and constant marginal costs. We show that, with commonly used models for linear demand such as the Bowley demand ...
  • A lattice test for additive separability 

    Polisson, Matthew (University of St Andrews, 2018-02-12) - Working or discussion paper
    We derive necessary and sufficient conditions for a finite data set of price and demand observations to be consistent with an additively separable preference. We do so without imposing concavity on any of the subutility ...
