Structural economics


Structural economics embraces all the structural-scientific ideas that contribute to a theoretical understanding of economic processes and, thus, can provide a basis for economic practice. To these belong inter alia game theory, information theory, systems theory, chaos theory, fractal theory and decision theory. The so-called evolutionary economics, which rests upon the theories of self-organisation and evolution, is also a part of structural economics.
