The Impact of the Programming Approach on Socio-Economic Modelling

  • Franco Archibugi


In Chaps.  5 and  6 (Vol. I), dedicated to the examination of the relationship between the programming approach and the elaboration of a political preference function, we have seen how the programming approach cannot remove itself from the given elaboration; and how this elaboration n turn reaches an unavoidably clear distinction (and relative separation in the modelling) between the construction of descriptive and decisional models.
