Topical Meeting

Venue: Santa Fe Institute, Santa Fe, NM

Summary: Technological change is a key component of economic growth. However, economists' treatment of this is typically at an aggregate level, in which technology is represented merely as a single number called the "total factor productivity". This workshop will bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines to make first steps toward constructing a theory of technological change. The discussions will focus on understanding ecosystems of interacting technologies and the factors that cause them to evolve through time. Please join this foremost group of experts, economists, biologists, applied mathematicians, physicists, engineers, archaeologists, and anthropologists for a one-day event in Santa Fe.

The workshop is supported by the Santa Fe Institute, the Institute for New Economic Thinking and the U.S. Department of Energy.

Summary: Business enterprises in general, and the modern corporation in particular, have become increasingly important elements in modern life and society. This topical meeting will address the historical origins of the modern corporation, the evolutionary nature of the firm, the impact of increasing globalization, the life cycle of the modern corporation, the implications of the "corporations are persons" doctrine in US law, and the relationship between corporations and other major social institutions such as cities.
