Description of EAEPE Research Area [S] – Evolutionary Economic Simulation

The use of computer simulations in economics goes back to the sixties, when large-scale mainframe econometric models with aggregate equations were used to simulate the US economy for the first time. Since then, the amount and variety of simulations has increased steadily, especially in evolutionary economics. In particular, the increasing availability of cheap computing power has allowed researchers to model and simulate the interactions between large numbers of bounded rational, heterogeneous agents.

RA-S organizes sessions at the annual EAEPE conferences and provides the opportunity for researchers working on/with evolutionary computational simulations to meet and exchange ideas. Special attention is given to interdisciplinary approaches addressing the evolution of economic agents and institutions in non-equilibrium processes under bounded rationality and social learning. In particular, we look for contributions offering new insights to collective action problems in the context of the long-run sustainability and interactions between environment, society and economy. Through the use of approaches from evolutionary economics and complex adaptive systems, we want to shed light on problems such as:

· evolutionary macroeconomics: endogenous money, investment-finance interlinkages, stock-flow consistency, endogenous business cycles, bubbles and crashes;

· societal transformation: individual and social choices, multi-level governance, evolution of cooperation, institutional structures and life-cycles, power and transformation;

· culture-environment co-evolution: consumption dynamics, socioeconomic  and -technical change, sustainability transition, socio-ecological transformation.

Sent on behalf of the Research Area Coordinators.
