Adaptive Economizing, Technological Change, and the Demand for Labor in Disequilibrium

Richard H. Day and Kenneth A. Hanson

Abstract: An adaptive economizing framework is proposed for analyzing labor market aspects of long-term industrial development using a dynamic, disaggregate economic model based upon principles of bounded rationality and markets in disequilibrium. The approach is applied to a firm's investment-production planning problem to illustrate how labor demand is related to capital investment and technological change.
