I have a few questions for Steve K:

*> The latter is his thesis, though substantially revised, and presented
*

*> using systems engineering "flowchart" tools rather than differential
*

*> equations.
*

1) is this only a question of "presentation" or are there inherent

non-presentational (i.e. analytical) advantages in the use of systems

engineering flow charts?

2) what do you see as the analytical advantages of systems engineering

tools and differential equations rather than other tools like matrix

algebra and game theory to model capitalist dynamics?

3) what branches of mathematics are best suited for the development of

chaotic models?

4) is capitalism chaotic? Why or why not?

In solidarity, Jerry
