From the PublisherKazuo Nishimura has made an enormous contribution to nonlinear economic dynamics with his pioneering papers and a sequence of subsequent studies on the subject. This beautifully edited book should help readers to follow optimal paths to many fundamental results in that field.
Takashi Negishi, The Japan Academy
Since the late 70s, Kazuo Nishimura has been a leader in the use of non-linear dynamics in economic theory. Several of the papers reproduced in this volume are essential reading for graduate students and researchers working in optimal growth theory.
Jose A. Scheinkman, Theodore Wells '29 Professor of Economics at Princeton University
Kazuo Nishimura is a recognized standard-bearer of Economic Theory, a giant of his Japanese generation. This well-chosen collection of articles is indicative of his admirable range, and contains his explorations of some of the deeper themes in dynamic economics:
complexity, discounting and indeterminacy. The editors should be congratulated on their efforts to make these durable pieces easily accessible for future researchers. This is a real tribute to a dedicated scholar.
Mukul Majumdar, H.T. and R.I. Warshow Professor of Economics, Cornell University.
Kazuo Nishimura is clearly one of the very few great economic theorists who have profoundly influenced our understanding of the dynamics of our economies. Making available this collection of his contributions to the field is an important service to our economic profession. This book should be very useful, in particular for younger researchers, who should greatly benefit from his vision. It should help them to contribute further to our understanding of this essential field”.
