As part of our celebration of the Institute’s 30th Anniversary, the Annual Trustees and Business Network Symposium will focus on the Institute’s longstanding interest in the economy as a complex system. Critical to this perspective are the realizations that: (a) economies are rarely, if ever, in equilibria; (b) humans are not completely rational utility maximizers; and (c) economies reflect the aggregate of many decisions and actions, by many different actors/agents, at many different scales, from the individual consumer, to the giant bank that’s “too big to fail”, to the actions of federal, state, and local governments. SFI speakers and collaborators will look backward to review and evaluate the accomplishments of the Institute’s alternative perspectives on economics and markets, and look forward to new developments and the extensions of current approaches.
