Contenuti The aim of the course is to teach student the strategic thinking that allows to solve complex economic problems, beyond mere appearances that characterize economic activities. The concept of strategy in fact necessarily involves the consideration of interaction between individuals, for which the choice requires a sensitivity and tools to seize opportunities in their entirety. This means that it is necessary to distinguish between theoretical though unattainable targets and real targets. In particular, to apply the method the course will use the context of network industries where strategic interactions also imply particular characteristics of the demand that make thet economic problems more itriguig and much less obvious than simple non-strategic profit maximazation.
Testi di riferimento Oz Shy, Economics of Network Industries, Cambridge University Press; other material indicated during the course.
Obiettivi formativi Student sin addition to acquiring a good command of some instruments will have acquired a problem solving method to be used on all occasions when they need to have a strategic vision.
Prerequisiti It is important that the student has attended a microeconomics course and a course in Industrial Economics or Industrial Organization.

Contenuti In this age of globalisation, the knowledge of foreign legal systems has become more and more important. On the one hand, lawmakers are frequently drawing inspiration from abroad, and, in various countries, courts do as well; on the other, international commerce requires people and business to deal with laws other than their own, leading to numerous attempts to harmonise and unify laws. In line with the increasing importance of comparing legal systems, the course aims at teaching the basics of comparative law and of the comparative method, which are essential for understanding today's legal complexity. The syllabus will focus, in particular, on the major legal traditions at the global level and on some peculiar legal systems, selected on the basis of their scientific interest and/or of their practical importance

Students achieve a sufficient grade if they will show to know at least the main theoretical concepts and to be able to set up a solution to basic applied cases The oral exam is optional. To access the oral exam, a minimum score of 18/30 in the written exam is required. With the oral examination, the score of the written part can be increased or reduced by a maximum of 3 points. The oral examination involves theoretical and applied questions. The final score of the integrated course is computed as the simple average of the results of the tests related to the two modules.

Risultati di apprendimento attesi LEARNING OUTCOMES KNOWLEDGE The course will provide students with up-to-date knowledge on the topics listed in the "Contents" section and on current international research on these topics. SKILLS At the end of the course, students will be able to: 1. Read current literature on models of rationality, decision analysis, heuristics and biases, nudging 2. Formulate and solve decision problems 3. Recognize biases in reasoning and decision making 4. Analyze their intuitions about preference, probability, and causation FURTHER SKILLS As a result of attending the course, students should exhibit 1. Improved communication skills 2. Improved critical thinking skills 3. Knowledge of international terminology 4. Avoidance of common errors in decision making and reasoning
Contenuti The aim of the course is twofold. A first part will review the main issue concerning the decision making process of individuals and organizations. In this context the main reference will be provided by the mainstream tools and methodology used by the economic theory, concerning the choice of individuals and firms. In addition the course will try to give an overview over the complex of features affecting the decisional process, including psychological issues, external interferences and so on. The second part of the course will thus focus on the behavioural approach applied to economics and finance, with a particular attention to the experimental methodology. The basic model of choice under risk and uncertainty and its main violations will be introduced, and the main paradoxes of the rational choice model discussed.

Risultati di apprendimento attesi At the end of the course students - will have a better knowledge of systematic deviation from the assumptions of the theory of rational choice (KNOWLEDGE) - will increase the capacity to apply behavioral analysis to legal question, and their capacity of reasoning about rationality, biases, responsibility, decision theory (ABILITY) - will be able to distinguish and compare different concepts and standards of reasoning (logical, causal, probabilistic) on different fields of application (COMPETENCE)
Contenuti For some decades the theory of rational choice was the dominant paradigm in the field of economic analysis of law. In recent years, a growing corpus of experimental studies has shown that our judgements and our behaviors of choice systematically deviate from those that should follow from the standard model of rational choice. The course wants to provide an introduction to the behavioral approach to economic analysis of law and to the deviations from rationality, with particular attention to the topics of deterrence and the economic analysis of litigation.

Obiettivi formativi The course will provide an updated knowledge of research on decision processes and on their distortions in legal environment, focusing on the evaluation of the efficiency of deterrence in criminal law and on the first choices in a trial.
Prerequisiti The course has no specific prerequisites.
Metodi didattici The course is mainly composed of lessons with interactions with students, who are welcome to intervene on the topic of the lesson or on texts previously suggested. The teachin material will be uploaded on DIR. On DIR students will find also auxiliary material (ppt of the lessons, glossary of technical terms, papers, .). Students are invited also to present essays on some of the toics treated during the lessons, selecting the topic with the teacher. Active participation will be evaluated also for the final grade.
Altre informazioni Please, consult the DIR page frequently for updates.
Modalità di verifica dell'apprendimento The final examination will be an oral examination with three questions. Students who presented a short essay during the lessons will have a reduced eamination. The examination will be in English.
Programma esteso 1. General Part There will be some general introduction to : (i) economic analysis of law, (ii) the theory of rational choice (ii) systematic errors discussed since the development of the “Heuristic and Biases” research program. There will be an analysis of the results obtained in this last field of research, both from a general philosophical point of view and from the point of view of economics. After an introduction on the main cognitive biases there will be an analysis on Khanemann & Tversky’s “prospect theory”. 2. Particular topics Deterrence: we will analyse from an economical viewpoint the topics of certainty, severity and efficacy of punishment. A particular attention will be given to the cognitive biases that can affect choices concerning criminal behavior and to the perception of the punishment. Trial: we will analyse which (more or less rational) considerations affect the preliminary choices concerning the trial. The teacher might make some follow up on particular further topics.
