Symbolic Algebra Programming for Analyzing the Long Run Dynamics of Economic Models

  • Gary S. Anderson


Economists have long used nonlinear mathematical models to explore important empirical and theoretical issues in public finance, development, international trade, savings and monetary policy. Recently, some researchers have criticized the way these and other models characterize the long run tendency of the economy. If the equations which codify the assumptions in the models can display bizarre behavior, the models could give misleading forecasts of the behavior of the economy.
