The Electronic Oracle

$35.00

Authors: D.H. Meadows and J.M. Robinson

This book compares the pros and cons of the four modeling paradigms used to understand the complex interactions that influence the behavior of social systems: system dynamics, econometrics, input-output analysis, and optimization. The book provides in-depth descriptions of nine important models based on these methods and discusses the role of modeling as an input to public policy. It is an outstanding textbook written from an insider’s viewpoint, with an outsider’s skepticism. This book is of continuing relevance and too important not to publish.
