The Behavioural Economics Research Group (BERG) is the home of behavioural economics within RMIT's School of Economics, Finance and Marketing. Behavioural economists like us try to make economics better reflect the behaviour of actual people by using methods and insights from psychology, cognitive and behavioural science. We typically use experiments to examine human behaviour in a variety of economic settings such as strategic and social behaviour, auctions, contests and markets, organisational behaviour, charitable giving and altruism as well as cross-cultural interactions.
