New Perspectives on Institutionalist Pattern Modeling: Systemism, Complexity, and Agent-Based Modeling

  • Kapeller, Jakop

Abstract

This paper focuses on the complementarity between original institutional economics, Mario Bunge’s framework of systemism, and the formal tools developed by complexity economists, especially in the context of agent-based modeling. Thereby, we assert that original institutional economics might profit from exploiting this complementarity.
