Dr. Philip Mirowski will be running a seminar inspired by his new book All the Knowledge We Have Lost Due to Information. The book examines the role of information in modern economics and how it influences policy and politics.
We will be reading “Information in Economics: A Fictionalist Account.” The article proposes that certain classes of economic models best be understood as “fictions.” The article will be circulated in advance.
