Perspectives on learning and economy - Reflections on the concept of learning in economic theory


  • Brian Kjær Andreasen

    (Centre for the Interdisciplinary Study of Learning, Aalborg University)


This article is an attempt to refine the theoretical discussion of the concept of learning in economic models. The article introduces a series of critical reflections on the way in which the concept of learning traditionally has been applied in modern economic theory. Alternatively, elements of the classical learning theory are outlined as potential supplements in the development of economic models that operate with learning and understanding.
