Virtual Discussion
  US Mountain Time

Our campus is closed to the public for this event.


The last several years have yielded new insights on non-linear regularities in the scaling of publicly traded for-profit firms. This area of study is still in its infancy. In particular, very little is known about how industrial policy, political economy, and regulatory environment impacts growth and mortality among publicly traded firms. In this 60-minute virtual ACtioN meeting SFI Professors Geoffrey West and Chris Kempes, along with SFI Applied Complexity Fellow Veronica Cappelli will unpack a new dataset comparing the scaling of publicly traded firms in the US and China and explore its implications for the underlying universal dynamics of firm behavior.
