2016 Information Bulletin of The Union of National Economic Associations in Japan  
This is the time for a radical change in our approach from a mathematically pedantic inference to an agent-based inference in evolutionary economics.  ...  Our starting point is an "integrative science" of evolutionary and institutional views.  ...  information-sensitive considerations, we should prepare for new approaches that can handle the two-sided renovations of ontology and epistemology in evolutionary economics.  ...

Human information behavior: Integrating diverse approaches and information use

Amanda Spink, Charles Cole
2005 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
However, despite the current focus on living in an "information age," we have a limited evolutionary understanding of human information behavior.  ...  In addition, due to the lack of clarity regarding the role of information use in information behavior, a fourth information approach is provided based on a theory of information use.  ...  In addition, library and information science researchers are beginning to explore an evolutionary context for human information behavior (Spink & Currier, in press; Warner, 2003) , which also provides  ...

Evolution-Based Approaches in Economics and Evolutionary Loss of Information

Torsten Heinrich
2016 Journal of Economic Issues  
The present contribution discusses the analogy of evolution in biology and economics and considers potential problems resulting in evolutionary models in economics.  ...  However, there are substantial differences between the genetic evolutionary biology, and the evolution of institutions, firms, routines or strategies in economics.  ...  Why is Economics not an Evolutionary Science?! In 1898, Thorstein Veblen (1898) contemplated that economics was not an evolutionary science -in stark contrast to other political and social sciences.  ...
