Holistic Theory of Economic Equilibrium: Modified Cassel–Wald Model

  • V. K. GorbunovEmail author
Control Theory


A modified Cassel–Wald model is used as an example of the holistic approach to creating a mathematical theory of market demand and economic equilibrium that is an alternative to methodological individualism (sociological reductionism). A theorem on the existence and uniqueness of equilibrium is proved.
