Computable Economics

Kumaraswamy Velupillai

Oxford University Press

In the concluding chapter, the themes broached in the first chapter are reconsidered in the light of the results and framework developed in the book as computable economics. In particular, the idea of economics as problem solving and economic agents as problem solvers is taken up for a methodological discussion. More generally, the discussion in this chapter centres on the philosophical and epistemological implications of the kind of mathematical methodology used in the formalization of economic theory.

Keywords:   computable numbers, induction, intuitionism, problem solving, real numbers
