0 Reviews
This text presents the elements of evolutionary economics both generally and as they were developed by Schumpeter, one of the worlds most renowned economists. It seeks to understand economics in terms of an evolutionary process at the population level, by means of mechanisms concerning the creation, transmission and selection of behavioural rules. The work uses computer-based studies as a supplement to standard mathematical models of analysis. It emphasizes that there is a need for combining such relatively clear-cut studies of artificially limited evolutionary processes with broad and descriptive accounts of economic transformation.
