Abstract

This quotation of Von Neumann can be found in his book: Theory of Games and Economic Behaviour,1 written in 1944 in collaboration with Morgenstern. Indeed, research has focused in the last decades on the strong understanding of the static situation of socio-economic systems. However, it is now technically possible to begin to fulfil Von Neumann’s dream (see Aubin et al2). We are more and more becoming aware of the important role that unstable and chaotic motion plays in the dynamics of macrosystems.
