John List is best known for pioneering the use of field experiments in economics. His work has stimulated a new area of study that explores economic behavior in naturally occurring environments with controlled experimental methods. He is the author of numerous articles on myriad subjects, including the economic aspects of environmental regulation; prospect theory; marketplace effects on corporate and government policy decisions; and field experimental work on charitable fundraising.
