On Research in Mathematical Economics
I come to applied mathematics via economic theory, and it is difficult for me to obtain a global view, sufficiently removed from my current research interests, to single out the most promising directions for the future. It may be more productive to point the reader to the handbooks referenced below where the subject, as contemporaneously conceived, is collectively surveyed. I ought also point to a recent (1991) issue of The Economic Journal in which a distinguished subset of economists speculate on the shape of the discipline of economics in the next hundred years.
