Complexity and Evolution provides a map of the path less followed by economics over the past fifty years―a path of complex, emergent behavior, and multiple evolutionary equilibria. This path holds great promise when making sense of our often jumbled economic and financial world.(Andrew G. Haldane, Chief Economist, Bank of England)
There are countless books now on interdisciplinary economics, commonly called econophysics. The editors address the question 'How can we comprehend the key ideas, with some applications that we all care about?' In answering this question, they and their contributors have produced a remarkably readable book, equally suitable for a course in economics or physical science. It is also ideal for self-study by practitioners who want to better understand some of the more complex ideas characterizing current work in this area.(H. Eugene Stanley, William Fairfield Warren Distinguished Professor, Boston University)
This 'how-to guide' lays out a design for renovating economics and constructing a fully integrated approach to human psychology, behavior, and society. This eclectic crew of researchers has begun the challenging job of scavenging the best available tools, methods, and insights from evolutionary biology, behavioral economics, ecology, psychology, neuroscience, and anthropology and then retrofitting them in this bold scientific endeavor.(Joe Henrich, Professor of Human Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University; author of The Secret of Our Success and coauthor of Why Humans Cooperate)
