About this book


In this book, leading experts discuss innovative components of complexity theory and chaos theory in economics.
The underlying perspective is that investigations of economic phenomena should view these phenomena not as deterministic, predictable, and mechanistic but rather as process dependent, organic, and always evolving.
The aim is to highlight the exciting potential of this approach in economics and its ability to overcome the limitations of past research and offer important new insights. The book offers a stimulating mix of theory, examples, and policy.
By casting light on a variety of topics in the field, it will provide an ideal platform for researchers wishing to deepen their understanding and identify areas for further investigation.
