Metaeconomics

From ACT Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A relative neologism, it is taken as the study of the emergent properties of an economy arising from its being a complex interactive set of potentially open, non-linear, dynamic, systems subject to rules or practices and, perhaps, mere habit that may be slow to change, as well as physical and biological and psychological constraints.

What is meant by emergent properties would be illustrated by an economy's competitiveness (for example of city-regions in nation states or of nation states in regional associations like the European Union or in the world generally) or its sustainability.


Sometimes written as meta-economics.

The meta part of the term suggests analysis beyond, or broader than, conventional economics.
