When SFI scientists first started working on economics over 30 years ago, many of the insights, approaches and tools were considered beyond heterodox. These once disparaged approaches included network economics, agents of limited rationality, and institutional evolution – all topics that are now increasingly considered mainstream. SFI continues to expand the boundary of our economic understanding, by pioneering fields as diverse as collective intelligence and organizational scaling. This special symposium explored the new frontier of complexity economics.

The proceedings of this symposium are captured in the first volume of SFI’s Dialogues of the Applied Complexity Network book series. Complexity Economics: Proceedings of the Santa Fe Institute's 2019 Fall Symposium is edited by W. Brian Arthur, Eric D. Beinhocker, and Allison Stanger and includes new introductions and reflections from the speakers and panelists.
