Economics at your fingertips  

The changing face of mainstream economics

David Colander, Richard Holt and J. Barkley Rosser

Review of Political Economy, 2004, vol. 16, issue 4, 485-499

Abstract: This article argues that economics is currently undergoing a fundamental shift in its method, away from neoclassical economics and into something new. Although that something new has not been fully developed, it is beginning to take form and is centered on dynamics, recursive methods and complexity theory. The foundation of this change is coming from economists who are doing cutting edge work and influencing mainstream economics. These economists are defining and laying the theoretical groundwork for the fundamental shift that is occurring in the economics profession.
