Government Economists for New Economics and Systems Science
It is now widely recognised that reductionist, sectoral, ad hoc and short-term policies are inadequate to face the systemic structural issues which threaten the future. New analytical and systems-oriented approaches are required both to understand and to manage the connected systemic issues of the modern world.
As governments are forced by reality to move towards more integrated systems-based approaches to the formulation and implementation of policy, it will become increasingly necessary to build new analytical capabilities within government departments. New economic thinking and systems-based approaches offer enormous potential and Government Economists for New Economics and Systems Science (GENESYS) offers a platform for debating, experimenting and discussing policy alternatives and the analytical approaches which underpin them.
