On June 10 and 11, PhD student Davide Pace and research fellow Joel van der Weele organize a conference on belief based utility and other aspects of belief formation. Standard economic theory posits a separation between preferences or emotions and beliefs, where the latter have purely instrumental value in decision making. In this conference we consider other approaches to belief formation, particularly when people derive direct value from their beliefs. The conference features theory, experiments, and applied work.
