Economic processes are difficult to describe and understand because there is no theory explaining them in the same way as the more classical phenomena appearing in physical sciences. Yet, economic processes play a crucial role in our everyday life and there is a great deal of effort devoted to predict future trends and understand how the various parameters may affect the evolution.
