Economists don't use test tubes or gene-sequencing machines, but they can run experiments on questions such as how we make choices when there's uncertainty about the outcome. Hosted by Georgia State University in Atlanta, EconPort brims with resources for researchers and teachers interested in economic experiments. A virtual textbook explains basics such as game theory and decision-making. Visitors can also consult a glossary and prowl a links catalog loaded with software, papers, tutorials, and other resources. The site also includes a feature to help users set up and run online experiments such as auctions.
