Bradley Ruffle

Dr. Bradley Ruffle is currently a Senior Lecturer in the economics department at Ben-Gurion University, which he joined after completing his Ph.D. in economics at Princeton University. He is primarily an experimental economist whose research interests lie in several areas including (1) rational economic explanations for seemingly irrational behavior, such as religion and religious observance, in-kind gift giving and terrorism; (2) buyer countervailing power and large-buyer discounts; (3) experimental tests of tax equivalence theorems, and (4) experimental game theory on topics such as cooperation. He is an associate editor at the International Journal of Industrial Organization. His research has been published in journals such as the American Economic Review, Current Anthropology, RAND Journal of Economics and the Journal of Public Economics.
