Beyond the Representative Agent

Editor

Listed:
  • Mauro Gallegati
  • Alan Kirman

Abstract

This challenging book extends standard economic theory to take into account the presence of heterogeneity among economic agents. It argues for an approach to economic analysis which regards the economy as an interactive system with heterogeneous agents and not simply a system which treats aggregates as some ‘representative’ individual.
