Abstract:     
The z-Tree program was developed at the University of Zurich. It was specially designed to enable the conducting of economic experiments without much prior experience. It consists, on the one hand, of z-Tree, the ?Zurich Toolbox for Readymade Experiments?, and, on the other hand, of z-Leaf, the program used by the subjects. In z-Tree, one can define and conduct experiments. One can program a broad range of experiments with z-Tree, including public goods games, structured bargaining experiments, posted-offer-markets or double auctions. The programming of z-Tree requires a certain experience. Thereafter, the effort required for conducting experiments is minimal: An experimenter with a certain amount of experience can program a public goods game in an hour and a double auction in less than a day.
