[S] Evolutionary Economic Simulation
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 nature, 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: investment-finance interlinkages, endogenous business cycles, bubbles and crashes;
- societal evolution: individual and social choices, governance, evolution of cooperation, institutional emergence and durability;
- culture-environment co-evolution: consumption dynamics, technology transition, sustainability.
Of course, we are also happy to discuss the development of the method as such in a critical way.
