This research review discusses the most critical and influential articles that utilise field experimentation to answer questions of economic importance. Field experiments have gained popularity in recent years, allowing researchers to infer causal effects of different market environments, policies and interventions. The articles analysed here provide insights into market functioning and individual and group decision-making across a wide range of domains, including marketplace transactions, labor decisions, charitable giving, financial planning, and education and health-related decision-making. This research review will be an important resource for students new to the methodology and applications of field experiments and academics alike.

This research review discusses and analyses a unique collection of key publications at the intersection of biology and economics, two disciplines that share a common subject: Homo sapiens. Beginning with Thomas Malthus— whose dire predictions of mass starvation due to population growth influenced Charles Darwin— economists have routinely used biological arguments in their models and methods. The review summarizes the most important of these developments in areas such as sociobiology, evolutionary psychology, behavioral ecology, behavioral economics and finance, neuroeconomics, and behavioral genomics. This research review will be an indispensable tool for economists, biologists, and practitioners looking to develop a deeper understanding of the limits of Homo economicus.

Economic forecasting has a long, and at times extremely chequered, history. While forecasts from large-scale macroeconomic models have attracted most attention in recent times, attempts to find temporal patterns in economic data that might enable predictions to be made about future events stretch back to the 17th century. This research review begins by discussing these early attempts at forecasting before moving on to the more current themes of macroeconomic forecasting and policy making, time series forecasting, the econometrics of forecasting, forecast evaluation, forecasting with leading indicators, forecasting in finance and economic forecasting using surveys.
