Behavioral Economics and Public Policy

About Us

The Behavioral Economics and Public Policy (BEPP) student organization introduces Harris students to the concepts of behavioral economics and the application of these concepts to public policy. BEPP's primary goal is to provide educational opportunities to students by sponsoring speakers and discussion groups. Practitioners and researchers speak to policy students about ways to incorporate behavioral insights into practice. A long term goal of the organization is to increase the amount of programming centered around behavioral economics at Harris. 

We welcome students, faculty, and staff from other divisions at the University to join our events. Please subscribe to the mailing list and follow us on Facebook to stay informed about BEPP events and learn about recent uses of behavioral insights in public policy.
