The complexity approach to economics largely originated from the “Santa Fe Perspective“: the view of a group of scientists working in the Economics Program at the Santa Fe Institute for the Study of Complex Systems. This paper tells the story of the Santa Fe Perspective, traces its relation with other ideas that emerged at SFI in this seminal period, and concludes with some reflections on the current state of complexity theory in economics.
