Doyne Farmer interview on economic modeling
Doyne Farmer is quite a critic of mainstream economics:
When you think about it, though, now that we're in the 21st century and everyone has a super-powered computer on their desktop, why shouldn't economics do complicated agent-based modeling? That seems to me to be just a 21st-century way of developing microfoundations.
Anyway, I'm taking a 3rd-year modeling class from the math department this fall because this is the sort of thing I'd like to get into.
