David Colander, Distinguished College Professor of Economics at Middlebury College, writes on complexity, history of economic thought, economic policy, and social science methodology. His recent book, Complexity and the Art of Public Policy, (co written with Roland Kupers) was described by Herb Gintis as the “best book on public policy in years.” He is currently at work on a book exploring how the neoclassical revolution in economics moved economics policy discussion away from its classical liberal policy roots, and how the complexity revolution is returning economics to those classical liberal roots.
