The Atlas of Economic Complexity

“The Atlas of Economic Complexity” ist ein 2011 erschienenes Buch von Ricardo Hausmann, Cesar A. Hidalgo, Sebastián Bustos, Michele Coscia, Sarah Chung, Juan Jimenez, Alexander Simoes and Muhammed A. Yıldırım. Das Buch erläutert komplexe ökonomische Zusammenhänge und unterscheidet sich in seinen Darstellungen und assoziativen Designs von jenen Standardmodellen, die wir aus der Ökonomie kennen.

Hier eine Erläuterung aus dem Buch: “Understanding the measures of economic complexity described in this atlas can be sometimes challenging. Analogies, however, can help get our minds around what the economic complexity index is able to capture. Think of a particular country and consider a random product. Now, ask yourself the following question: if this country cannot make this product, in how many other countries can this product be made? If the answer is many countries, then this country probably does not have a complex economy. On the other hand, if few other countries are able to make a product that this country cannot make, this would suggest that this is a complex economy.” S. 23.

Das Projekt war eine Kollaboration zwischen dem Center for International Development an der Harvard University und der Macro Connections Group des MIT Media Lab.

Das Buch ist über die Harvard Universität frei erhältlich (direkter Link)
