This is a new book just out, edited by Diane Coyle, which has the contributions to a one day conference organised by the Bank of England and the Government Economic Service.  Paul wrote a chapter with Dirk Helbing, research director of the 1 billion Euro project FuturICT, on ‘Back to the Drawing Board with Macroeconomics’, available here.  Bridget reflects on what does it mean to be an economist, and what economics can learn from other disciplines (here)
