Markets are more than Bits

Research output: Contribution to journalDebate/Note/Editorial

Abstract

This paper argues that the main contribution of Mirowski's paper is the new combination of some seemingly unrelated ideas, like principles for market evolvement and automata theory. Furthermore, many of Mirowski's ideas ought to be inspiring for future economic research. However, it is argued that some ideas, if scrutinized, are difficult to motivate, and other need further refinement before they can provide a firm basis for a new research programme in economics.
