Complexity and the Economy

Edited by John Finch and Magali Orillard

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

The book makes a valuable contribution to the increasingly prominent subject of complexity, especially for those whose interests include evolutionary, behavioural, political and social approaches to understanding economics and economic phenomena.
