Introduction to Complexity Economics Reading Group begins Tuesday

Hello everyone,

Our next reading group begins this week! This reading group aims to give an introduction to the tools and ideas of Complexity Economics, and is open to anyone who is interested. We are looking forward to having many participants, generating excellent discussions, and connecting with other young scholars.

Every week we will be meeting to discuss papers that have defined research in Complexity Economics, or give an idea of where the field is headed. In each webinar a designated reading group participant will present a quick paper summary, followed by discussion. At the end there will be an opportunity for young scholars to present their own work related to the topics we have discussed. We may have experts or authors leading some sessions.

Please check the project page for the most up-to-date schedule and reading list:

To volunteer to lead a session or present related work of your own, please email [email protected] at least two weeks in advance.
