Behavioral Game Theory
LeVeck's research uses experiments and mathematical models to examine strategic decision-making in politics. Much of his recent research has focused on the causes and consequences of "collective wisdom" in democracies. Sometimes groups, such as parties, committees, and electorates are able to make better decisions than any one individual. Yet, there are other instances where the same groups "herd" towards terrible decisions. Why? What can be done to promote better collective decision-making?
