Noyce Conference Room

All day


Our campus is closed to the public for this event.

The global economy is undergoing a series of structural transformations including the transition to net-zero due to climate change, technological change, demographic change, and shifting balances of economic power. These structural changes raise critical issues of economic justice and political economy, and have contributed to political polarization. Complexity economics is increasingly providing new ways of understanding these problems. This workshop will review these applications, discuss how they can be expanded and identify new avenues of research. For this meeting we will issue a call for papers and gather the best new work in this field. We will also have a few invited talks. These new results will be presented, along with a discussion. Participants for the working group will be drawn from a range of social, 2 behavioral, and physical science disciplines. A significant proportion of the participants will be early career scholars. Outputs will include technical papers to fill a special issue of an economics journal (to be determined) as well as a collection of perspective papers, to be gathered in a volume to be titled “The Economy as an Evolving Complex System, Part IV”.
