One method of economic modelling that has become increasingly popular in academia, government and the private sector is Agent Based Models, or ABM. These simulate the actions and interactions of thousands or even millions of people to try to understand the economy – for this reason ABM was once described to me as being “like Sim City without the graphics”. One advantage of ABM is that it is flexible, since you can choose how many agents there are (an agent just means some kind of 'economic decision maker' like a firm, consumer, worker or government); how they behave (do they use complicated or simple rules to make decisions?); as well as the environment they act in, then just run the simulation and see what happens as they interact over time.

In the history of the social sciences, few individuals have exerted as much influence as has Jeremy Bentham.

La crisis del modelo de desarrollo ha dado una nueva vigencia a organizaciones que no pertenecen ni al sector privado tradicional ni al sector público. Estas organizaciones reciben diferentes apelaciones, tercer sector, economía solidaria, economía social, economía popular, organizaciones de desarrollo social, etc. Este trabajo se propone analizar los contextos de utilización de algunos de estos términos que designan las actividades que escapan a la lógica capitalista y a la lógica de la administración pública. La nueva constitución venezolana de 2000 incluye en su artículo 184 un término nuevo en el país, el de economía social. Se trata de un término que data del siglo XIX, cuando era utilizado sobre todo en el mundo francófono. La crisis del modelo de desarrollo fordista ha llevado a su reactualización a partir de los años 1980. Las definiciones que tiene varían según los países. Este trabajo tiene como propósito precisar el significado de este término, y de otros que le son afines. Luego, se definen algunos criterios para la delimitación de un sector de economía social en Venezuela.

Most mainstream neoclassical economists completely failed to anticipate the crisis which broke in 2007 and 2008. There is however a long tradition of economic analysis which emphasises how growth in a capitalist economy leads to an accumulation of tensions and results in periodic crises. This paper first reviews the work of Karl Marx who was one of the first writers to incorporate an analysis of periodic crisis in his analysis of capitalist accumulation. The paper then considers the approach of various subsequent Marxian writers, most of whom locate periodic cyclical crises within the framework of longer-term phases of capitalist development, the most recent of which is generally seen as having begun in the 1980s. The paper also looks at the analyses of Thorstein Veblen and Wesley Claire Mitchell, two US institutionalist economists who stressed the role of finance and its contribution to generating periodic crises, and the Italian Circuitist writers who stress the problematic challenge of ensuring that bank advances to productive enterprises can successfully be repaid.

The general idea of a Job Guarantee (JG) is that the government offers employment to everybody ready, willing and able to work for a living wage in the last instance as an Employer of Last Resort. The concept tackles societal needs that are not satisfied by market forces and the systemic characteristic of unemployment in capitalist societies. Being a central part of the Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), attention for the JG concept rose in recent years.
