Social Policy Brown Bag Seminar.
Using the Behavioural Research Lab for behavioural studies and experimental measurements

Presentation
by Dr Jeroen Nieboer

Abstract:
The laboratory is a versatile tool for studying human communication, taking behavioural measurements and testing theories of human behaviour. In this one-hour seminar, we will discuss how laboratory methods can be used to study a variety of topics in the social sciences. We will consider some of the most (in)famous experiments in social science and what they teach us about experimentation with human subjects. I will also encourage you to consider the pros and cons of behavioural research in the context of your own research topics.

Understanding the Pricing Dynamics in the US Health Care Industry

Speaker: Dr Zack Cooper (Yale University and ISPS)

Time: 12.30-13.45

Registration link: http://lsehsc-cooper.eventbrite.co.uk|

Abstract

Despite being one of the largest sectors of the economy, we have severely limited information about the prices that health care providers charge individuals and private insurers for their services. For decades, these prices have been treated as commercially sensitive and have been largely unavailable to researchers. As a result, we have a limited understanding of key health care pricing dynamics including the growth and variation in providers' prices within the US. This knowledge gap is a hindrance to policy-makers and limits our collective ability to introduce effective public policy. In this seminar, Dr Cooper will discuss the variation within and across markets in the US and analyse the factors that are driving this variation.
