Time: 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Place: D-604 (Auditorio)

At the meeting, open to all disciplines, researcher Catalina Blanco will talk about complexity and its interactions.

Although economists are looking for a balance between factors such as supply and demand, consumption and production, work and leisure, not always is there stability between the various factors and agents. The imbalance can be understood from complexity.

To talk about how this phenomenon affects our daily lives, Catalina Blanco, Economics Faculty professor and researcher, will be the guest at the next “Conversations among economists,” a space for debate on current issues, open to different disciplines.

“Complexity seeks to understand people interaction from their environment. It addresses how interactions and the choices we make as individuals generate spontaneous phenomena leading us to commonplace situations, such as a traffic jam,” said the professor.

“Are we complex, or simply complicated? Economics, society and ecosystems” is the title of the chat by Andrea Catalina Blanco Moreno, PhD in Economics from the University of Essex and Master in Methods for Management of Complex Systems from the University of Pavia.
