Department of Economics chair Professor John List has been awarded an honorary doctorate by Tilburg University. In his Nov. 20th keynote lecture at the university's Dies Natalis anniversary celebration, List described how his research helps explain why people do what they do in everyday situations - and how incentives can change their behavior. Tilburg University calls him "a true pioneer in experimental field research," whose innovative work has "finally made it possible to test behavioral economic theory in everyday practice...He has raised this research area to a higher level with his originality, expertise, and impact, and he is an inspiration to many."
