Essay from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - General, Maastricht University, course: Philosophy of Science, language: English, abstract: One of many economic theories claims, that any kind of government intervention in competitive markets prevents the market from reaching its equilibrium and thus causes a smaller economic surplus and an inefficient market (McDowell et al., 2006). But is it really true? Do politicians consider this assumption when making decisions? Actually, they often do not. The point is, that nobody really knows the “truth” about economic theories, because economists often disagree in their theories and predict different outcomes, as Klamer (2008) describes. This fact leads many people to claim that (business) economics is not a real science. This paper will debate this statement and find an answer to the problem if economics is a science or not.

This book takes recent theoretical advances in Finance and Economics and shows how they can be implemented in the real world. It presents tactics for using mathematical and simulation models to solve complex tasks of forecasting income, valuing businesses, predicting retail sales, and evaluating markets and tax and regulatory problems. Business Economics and Finance with Matlab, GIS, and Simulation Models provides a unique overview of sophisticated business and financial applications. It describes models that have been developed for analysis of retail sales, tax policy, location, economic impact, public policy issues, and other challenges faced by executives, investors, and economists on a daily basis. It also offers groundbreaking insight into the many calculation and modeling tools that can be remotely hosted and run over the Internet, resulting in substantial user benefits and cost savings. This book is the first to fully explore the capabilities of MATLAB in the field of business economics, and explain how the benefits of sophisticated mathematical models can be provided to users via the Internet, using a thin-client environment. Many techniques directly incorporate geographic information and GIS in a way that was impossible until quite recently. Some techniques, such as fuzzy logic, retail sales, economic and fiscal impact models, and other Matlab and Simulink models, are described for the first time in print in this book. The sections on business income and value break new ground by directly incorporating uncertainty, real option value, and prediction of variables using Ito and jump processes. Using dozens of examples, hundreds of references, and rigorous explanations of both theory and practice, it will become a prized reference for analysts demanding the best techniques.

Diagrams are included to aid the explanation of complex issues, and review and discussion questions are incorporated to consolidate and expand on the learning.
