    Rationality in Economics: Constructivist and Ecological Forms.Vernon L. Smith - 2007 - Cambridge University Press.
    The principal findings of experimental economics are that impersonal exchange in markets converges in repeated interaction to the equilibrium states implied by economic theory, under information conditions far weaker than specified in the theory. In personal, social, and economic exchange, as studied in two-person games, cooperation exceeds the prediction of traditional game theory. This book relates these two findings to field studies and applications and integrates them with the main themes of the Scottish Enlightenment and with the thoughts of F. (...)

    Humanomics: Moral Sentiments and the Wealth of Nations for the Twenty-First Century.Vernon L. Smith & Bart J. Wilson - 2018 - Cambridge University Press.
    While neo-classical analysis works well for studying impersonal exchange in markets, it fails to explain why people conduct themselves the way they do in their personal relationships with family, neighbors, and friends. In Humanomics, Nobel Prize-winning economist Vernon L. Smith and his long-time co-author Bart J. Wilson bring their study of economics full circle by returning to the founder of modern economics, Adam Smith. Sometime in the last 250 years, economists lost sight of the full range of human feeling, thinking, (...)

    Monetary Policy, Credit Extension, and Housing Bubbles: 2008 and 1929.Steven Gjerstad & Vernon L. Smith - 2009 - Critical Review: A Journal of Politics and Society 21 (2-3):269-300.
    ABSTRACT Asset?market bubbles occur dependably in laboratory experiments and almost as reliably throughout economic history?yet they do not usually bring the global economy to its knees. The Crash of 2008 was caused by the bursting of a housing bubble of unusual size that was fed by a massive expansion of mortgage credit?facilitated, in turn, by the longest sustained expansionary monetary policy of the past half century. Much of this mortgage credit was extended to people with little net wealth who made (...)

    Papers in Experimental Economics.Vernon L. Smith - 1991 - Cambridge University Press.
    Professor Vernon L. Smith is a major creator of the new discipline of experimental economics. This collection of his papers from 1962 to 1990 surveys key developments in the field from early attempts to study economic behaviour in now classic double oral auction markets through recent studies of industrial organization and decision making. Topics covered include monopoly and oligopoly, supply and demand theory under posted pricing, uniform pricing, double continuous auction, and sealed bid-offer auctions; hypothetical valuation and market pricing; asset (...)

    Sociality and Self Interest.Vernon L. Smith - 2005 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (6):833-834.
    Selfishness narrowly defined as choosing dominant outcomes independent of context is widely rejected by experimentalists. Humans live in two worlds of personal and impersonal exchange; both are manifestations of human sociality, but the emphasis on preferences rather than cultural norms of personal exchange across time too much reflects a limited economic modeling, and fails to capitalize on the fresher experimental economics message of culture and diversity.

  11. Bargaining and Market Behavior: Essays in Experimental Economics.Vernon L. Smith - 2000 - Cambridge University Press.
    This second Cambridge University Press collection of papers by Vernon L. Smith, a creator of the field of experimental economics, includes many of his primary authored and coauthored contributions on bargaining and market behavior between 1990 and 1998. The essays explore the use of laboratory experiments to test propositions derived from economics and game theory. They also investigate the relationship between experimental economics and psychology, particularly the field of evolutionary psychology, using the latter to broaden the perspective in which experimental (...)

    From Old Issues to New Directions in Experimental Psychology and Economics.Vernon L. Smith - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (3):428-429.
    The rhetoric of hypothesis testing implies that game theory is not testable if a negative result is blamed on any auxiliary hypothesis such as “rewards are inadequate.” This is because either the theory is not falsifiable (since a larger payoff can be imagined, one can always conclude that payoffs were inadequate) or it has no predictive content (the appropriate payoff cannot be prespecified).
