Society, Technology & Policy

ST & P is a study of the substance and the process of socioeconomic problem solving, especially as related to technological development and public policy. Most socioeconomic problems - e.g., inflation, unemployment, urban deterioration, environmental pollution, income inequality, or infrastructure creation and maintenance - go beyond the boundaries of the traditional social science disciplines. It is the integration of knowledge and research techniques from several disciplines including: system dynamic, economics, sociology, psychology, law and political science, with system dynamics providing a computer modeling and experimental analysis approach to problem solving and policy analysis.
