More recently the complexity view has also drawn the attention of policy makers, who are faced with complex phenomena, irregular fluctuations and sudden, unpredictable market transitions. The complexity tools - bifurcations, chaos, multiple equilibria - discussed in this book will help students, researchers and policy makers to build more realistic behavioral models with heterogeneous expectations to describe financial market movements and macro-economic fluctuations, in order to better manage crises in a complex global economy.Baak (1999) and Chavas (2000) estimated HAMs on hog and beef market data, and found evidence for the ... 2009), stock option prices (Frijns et al., 2010), exchange rates (de Jong et al., 2010; Jongen et al., 2012), oil prices (ter Ellen andanbsp;...
