Computational Irreducibility in Economics – An Economist’s Review of A New Kind of Science

July 28, 2012

6

Beginning in the mid-20th century, economists have published articles, books and original research whose content consisted increasingly of systems of equations acting as economic models, and decreasingly of economic reasoning and theory.

Property is the right to exclude unwanted use and occupation of space. Larger and more central properties have gradually less exclusive policies. The state practices a large-scale, uniform residential policy which it codifies in immigration laws in order to expand its power. This suffers the failures of egalitarianism and creates antagonism between different cultures and […]
