Turing's Economics. A Birth Centennial Homage
In this paper, in homage to Alan Turing's birth centennial, I try to develop what may be calledTuring's Economics. I characterize the contents of such an «economics» in terms of the conceptualand mathematical tools developed by Alan Turing. It is shown, in more and less detail, how these conceptsand tools could be used in core areas of economic theory to raise fundamental queries on claimsof computability - and answer them precisely. The conclusion is that the field of Turing's Economicswould - should - contribute to a reorientation of economics in the direction of serious considerations ofmathematical epistemology.
