I am currently working with Salvador Espinosa and Ken Kriz on efforts to encourage more behavioral public finance research. At the 2018 Association for Budgeting and Financial Management (ABFM) annual meeting we hosted a roundtable discussion is intended to encourage multi-disciplinary scholarly research that combines theories, methods and empirical findings from psychology, behavioral public policy, and behavioral economics to address important questions in public finance. Just prior to the discussion, I made a brief presentation about verbal ‘Talk Aloud’ or ‘Think Aloud’ protocols and applications to research on decision making in public finance (see summary here and my presentation here).

We are also guest editing a symposium on BEHAVIORAL PUBLIC FINANCE: NEW APPROACHES TO OLD QUESTIONS for Public Finance and Management.  See the call for proposals/papers below.
