Lectures at Leading Chinese Universities : Agent based Computational Economics, Digital Economics and Digital Network Models of the Economy          

Considerable swathes of the economy from retail trade, financial markets, money and information have gone digital.  However, Economics Departments in the UK  curtailed in their capacity to innovate and embrace diversity due to the so called REF (Research Excellence Framework) which restricts analysis to traditional economic models, have been slow on the uptake.  The lectures I did for the Chinese Universities (and at the HMT mini-conference) summarizes the vast software developments I with co-authors (mostly CCFEA PhD students) have done to date on smart markets and digital network models.

Essex University Economics Department is the only UK Economics Department where there is PG training in  Agent based Computational Economics and data driven Digital network models of the economy.
