Agent-based macroeconomics, a seminar in Pisa

The GROWINPRO researchers Giovanni Dosi and Andrea Roventini discussed with Alan Kirman on April 10th about complexity and agent-based models in a seminar dedicated to the macroeconomic challenges for the XXI century

Andrea Roventini and Giovanni Dosi, the principal investigator and the deputy of the newly launched GROWINPRO project (Growth, Welfare, Innovation, Productivity) discussed with Alan Kirman (École des hautes études en sciences sociales – EHESS) about complexity and agent-based models in the first of a series of seminars on ‘The challenges for the XXI century Macroeconomics’.
The event, held in Pisa at the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna on April 10, 2019, has been organised by Rethinking Economics Pisa, a network of students of the Master of Science in Economics, with the support of the Department of Excellence EMbeDS and of the H2020 EU funded GROWINPRO project.
During the roundtable – The economy as a complex evolving system: the case for agent-based macroeconomics –, the speakers discussed about agent-based models which will be extensively employed in the GROWINPRO project.
Taking forward the results of the ISIGrowth project, GROWINPRO aims to provide a detailed analysis of the causes of the productivity slowdown and the anemic growth performance observed in Europe during the last decades and, on the base of such analysis, deliver a set of policy solutions aimed at restoring sustained and inclusive economic growth.
