Event:Dockner Lectures:
Cars Hommes - "Complex Economic Dynamics"
Date:Tuesday, 28th of April 2020, 5 p.m.
Place:Skylounge (12th Floor), Faculty of Business, Economics and Statistics, Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz 1, 1090 Vienna
Abstract:This talk surveys some of Prof. Hommes' work on complex economic dynamics with adaptively learning agents in behavioral macro-finance models. The economy consists of boundedly rational agents who do not fully understand their complex environment and use simple decision heuristics. This leads to a complex nonlinear adaptive system with complex dynamics, where the economy may not settle down to the rational equilibrium, but rather agents may learn almost self-fulfilling equilibria with highly persistent expectations driven fluctuations.
