An Expanded Scope For Qualitative Economics
As currently practiced, the analysis of an economic model's qualitative properties is very restricted and rarely productive. This paper provides an approach for conducting an expanded qualitative analysis that can be applied to any economic model. The method proposed will enable the qualitative properties of all economic models to be critically assessed.
