Benjamin Enke, Harvard University

Benjamin Enke is an Associate Professor at Harvard's Department of Economics and a Faculty Research Fellow at the NBER

Benjamin Enke's research is in behavioral and experimental economics, cultural economics, and political economy. His work focuses on two lines of inquiry. First, he conducts experimental research to understand how the interplay of bounded rationality and complexity shapes economic decisions and beliefs. Secondly, he employs a combination of experimental and survey-based techniques to shed light on the economic and political relevance of heterogeneity in moral universalism (and cultural variation more generally).

He received his Ph.D. in 2016 from the University of Bonn and subsequently joined Harvard’s Economics Department. Since 2018, he also serves as Associate Editor at the Journal of the European Economic Association.
