Since the 70s, experimental and behavioral economics has exhibited growing attention within the field of economics. This direction is also reflected in a growing list of Noble Prize winners, most prominently Daniel Kahnemann and Vernon Smith and most recently Abhijit Banerjee, Esther Duflo and Michael Kremer. Even if the methodology of experimental economics seems to be nothing new for many natural sciences, its adaption and modification have generated many valuable insights for economics. The projects presented in this thesis contribute to a wide range of different behavioral economic issues and, therefore, give an idea of the diversity of this scientific field. Besides answering various research questions, this thesis also aims to provide an impression of the interdisciplinarity and experimental methods that make up this diversity.
