Krugman and Wall Street Journal on Economic Modeling

posted by Anonymous (not verified), 02 December 2010

Interesting article in Wall Street Journal on economic modeling, as cited by Krugman in his "Conscience of a Liberal" blog in the NY times.  I'll reserve further comment except to state that Krugman does seem to ignore Mandelbrot's work on the fact that variations of prices of cotton did not follow a gaussian distribution....

What must be regulated?

posted by Anonymous (not verified), 17 May 2010

First, all 'financial objects' that are so illiquid as to require a trumped up model for pricing, objects that cannot be priced by a liquid market, must be outlawed. This includes very many derivatives and also  junk bond-like objects like CMOs, etc. Second, the Glass-Steagall act (passed in 1935 by FDR to prohibit banks from stock speculation and consequent losses) must be reinstituted....

'Particle' model as the null model

posted by Anonymous (not verified), 16 April 2010

  A key point became clear at the Soros conference.  Many economists believe there is a fundamental difference between particles in physics and agents in economic systems. At one level, this is trivially true.  The latter can act with purpose and intent. Unless we find a way to communicate on this point, economists will not take econophysics seriously....
The case for statistical equilibrium in economics

The text below is an excerpt from my forthcoming book Finitary Probabilistic Methods in Econophysics, written with Ubaldo Garibaldi for CUP. It is a partial answer to the post of Jean-Phillippe Bouchaud (less poetic, however). << In Economics, distributional problems appear at least in the following frameworks...
The Challenge of New Economic Thinking

posted by Anonymous (not verified), 12 April 2010

At the inaugural meeting for the Institute for New Economic Thinking, no one disagreed with the proposition that economics needs a hard kick in the pants to move in new directions. The question is, what should the new directions be, and how will we get there? There are schools of thought about how to do this, but some of these schools of thought are far apart....
New Thinking? you must be kidding, Mr Soros!

posted by Anonymous (not verified), 09 April 2010

Interestingly, as the conference unfolds, there is a real feeling building up in the coffee/lunch breaks that this is not really New Thinking at all - 'they seem as if they've lost their way' was one comment made to me. Maybe I have this impression because of self-selection, of talking to people I know. But people I've never met before are saying the same thing....
