Title: Complex Ecologic-Economic Dynamics
This paper examines how interactions between ecosystems and economic agents lead to
nonlinearities in dynamics absent without this interaction that can result in a variety of
endogenous complex dynamics, including catastrophic discontinuities and chaotic
irregularities, among others. Examples studied include fisheries, forests, shallow lakes,
and multi-level hierarchical systems.
