Mediators of economic and social changes

Departamento de Economía Aplicada


Prosperous nations tend to be societies that fulfill their economic and social obligations, in this respect, both Spanish and Valencian society must continue to improve. In this workshop we seek to understand the mechanisms by which economic and social agents can be shaped in order to create values that fight inequalities and leave behind unethical behaviors in our societies. These changes can be fast or slow, collecting data in the laboratory and naturally generated data will allow us to create working hypotheses with which to formulate models given a context. Understanding how these cultural values and attitudes change will improve knowledge of how these mechanisms operate.


This Workshop is possible thanks to funding from the Generalitat Valenciana, Consellería d'Innovació, Universitats, Ciència i Societat Digital, through the project "Information, context, characteristics and preferences: Mediators of economic and social change. Creating efficient institutions and committed societies".  (AICO/2021/257)
