Computational Economics and Economic Theory: Substitutes or Complements

  title={Computational Economics and Economic Theory: Substitutes or Complements},
  author={K. Judd},
This essay examines the idea and potential of a computational approach to theory,' discusses methodological issues raised by such computational methods, and outlines the problems associated with the dissemination of computational methods and the exposition of computational results. We argue that the study of a theory need not be confined to proving theorems, that current and future computer technologies create new possibilities for theoretical analysis, and that by resolving these issues we can… Expand
