The Y2K Bibliography of Experimental Economics and Social Science

Charles A. Holt

   This bibliography lists exactly 2000 publications, plus about 500 discussion papers in experimental economics and social science (updated December 29, 1999).  It is arranged by keyword topic, roughly following the layout of Davis and Holt's Experimental Economics (1993).  Each citation appears in only one primary category on the left, and may appear in multiple sub-topic listings.  Asterisks indicate data that I have a question about, and selected abstracts represent my personal interpretations, which are not necessarily those of the author(s).  I hope that you find it useful, and corrections and suggestions are  I would like to thank Ellen Quarles, Haimi Teriffa, and Sallie Holt for assistance.  For online and personal use only, all rights reserved (Charles Holt).  The on-line search product provided by the Endnote program used to compile this bibliography has been discontinued, and I am working on an alternative.
