Ran Weksler

Ran is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Economics and the Center for the Study of Rationality in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His research deals with decision making in economic situations, i.e., situations where agents (individuals and companies) seek to maximize their economic benefit, while taking into account the behavior of their opponents. Ran's study is part of a growing literature in the field of micro-economics theory that examines classical economic situations (CPI prices, supply and demand), which were tested in the past under the assumption that all parties are perfectly informed about the situation, and is now challenged under a new premise that information is only partial. The importance of his research lies in working with complex analytical models that are strongly linked to economic reality.
