The New Zealand Experimental Economics Laboratory (NZEEL) is a state-of-the-art, nationally unique research facility that can be used to assist industry and government agencies in addressing open policy questions. Using cutting-edge techniques in experimental economics means business or policy makers can “test bed” new economic mechanisms and markets in laboratory experiments before they are implemented. Applications range from private procurement and financial market regulation to auctioning public resources such as the broadcast spectrum.
