The unrepresentative economist

Alan Kirman is probably not well known for Students, for several reassons. But mainly because if Professors talk about Alan Kirman’s work they undermine almost every model they present to you in class. In the following video (the only available on youtube) Alan Kirman keynote lecture “The Crisis in Economic Theory” in International Network for Economic Method -conference in Helsinki, 1.9.2011.

He talks about the “next big thing” on economics, complexity, and how it changes our approach to Economics, not only methodologically but also philosophically. Take your time to watch the video and understand the underlying changes that will shake neo-classical Economics.
