Accelerating technology and global interconnections hold more promise – and more peril – than any other time in human history. How can we shape an economy to better address the complex problems facing the world?

Many books have been written about Doyne Farmer and his work. Making Sense of Chaos is his personal manifesto for doing economics better.

As a complex systems scientist and entrepreneur, Doyne has pioneered many of the fields that define the scientific agenda of our times: chaos, complexity, artificial life, wearable computing, and more.

A former Oppenheimer Fellow and founder of the Complex Systems Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Doyne built the first wearable digital computer while still a graduate student, and successfully used it to predict the game of roulette.
