A Science Less Dismal: Welcome to the Economic Manhattan Project was a presentation by Eric Weinstein at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics for the Perimeter Institute conference on economics.
Title: A Science Less Dismal: Welcome to the Economic Manhattan Project
Speaker: Eric Weinstein
Abstract: An unexpected economic crisis provides an excellent opportunity to better understand the state of Economic theory as a science. While there appears to have been a broad systemic failure within the community of professional economists to predict the current collapse, it must be noted that there have been scattered successes which appear striking and demand our attention. The goal of this conference is to bring together economists, biologists, mathematicians, physicists, programmers, and financial professionals to explore the opportunities for bringing economic theory into closer contact with the more traditional sciences as the basis for ongoing work, partnership, and collaboration.
