Part of the Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems book series (LNE, volume 293)


From perspectives represented in this volume, contemporary economics may be regarded as a mature discipline. It has brought the state of the art close to the boundaries of the predominant paradigm. Breaking through these boundaries implies a search for alternatives or at least some alterations to this paradigm. Many of the contributions contained herein spring from such ambitions. The different chapters consist of various attempts to permeate the boundaries or to open up new pathways within the existing paradigm, and in several cases to break with the established tradition.
