Complexity and Evolution: Toward a New Synthesis for Economics (Strüngmann Forum Reports Book 19)
An exploration of how approaches that draw on evolutionary theory and complexity science can advance our understanding of economics.Two widely heralded yet contested approaches to economics have emerged in recent years: one emphasizes evolutionary theory in terms of individuals and institutions; the other views economies as complex adaptive systems. In this book, leading scholars examine these two bodies of theory, exploring their possible impact on economics. Relevant concepts from evolutionary theory drawn on by the contributors include the distinction between proximate and ultimate causation, multilevel selection, cultural change as an evolutionary process, and human psychology as a product of gene-culture coevolution. Applicable ideas from complexity theory include self-organization, fractals, chaos theory, sensitive dependence, basins of attraction, and path dependence. The contributors discuss a synthesis of complexity and evolutionary approaches and the challenges that emerge. Focusing on evolutionary behavioral economics, and the evolution of institutions, they offer practical applications and point to avenues for future research.ContributorsRobert Axtell, Jenna Bednar, Eric D.

Central America: Land of Lords and Lizards (Van Nostrand Searchlight Books)
In this survey of the Central American nations, Dr. Kalijarvi analyzes the impact of Communism upon Central America and outlines a positive program to halt its spread. In his discussion the author examines the physical geography, the people, their strivings for independence and political stability, and the economic problems, both of the region as a whole and of the individual countries. The present-day ground fire of resentment against centuries-old social institutions, unequal distribution of wealth, and prevalence of disease is being fanned by a new urbanization, industrialization, unionization of labor, and foreign ideologies, especially Communism. Prejudices and strong and latent hostility toward the United States flares up on occasion. This book seeks to show the nature of the Central American, his major problems, why the United States should take an interest in him and his country, and what the United States has done and is now doing to help him.
