It is natural to claim, as I do in this paper, that the emergence of nonconstructivities in economics is entirely due to the formalization of economics by means of ‘classical’mathematics. I have made similar claims for the emergence of uncomputabilities and undecidabilities in economics in earlier writings. Here, on the other hand, I want to suggest a way of confronting uncomputabilites, and remedying non-constructivities, in economics, and turning them into a positive force for modelling, for… CONTINUE READING
