Arlington is a Full Professor in the Department of Economics at Indiana University, Bloomington. Much of his research has involved the design and implementation of computerizedtrading environments to investigate empirically the predictive power of market equilibrium theories. For example, a paper in Econometrica “Bubbles, Crashes, and Endogenous Expectations in Experimental Spot Asset Markets” used laboratory markets to study stock market price bubbles and crashes. He has also used experimental methods to study price expectation formation models and public goods provision via voluntary contributions, and risk preference differentials revealed by individual decisions versus small-group decisions.
