Many researchers have conducted experiments to study different aspects of insider trading. Experimental laboratory asset markets allow the researcher to control parameters that are impossible to control or even measure in empirical data (e.g., fundamental value of the asset, quality and quantity of information traders receive). This paper provides an exhaustive overview of the results from experimental economics on asset markets with asymmetrically informed participants.
