Today Robin Hahnels new book - Democratic economic planning - came with the mail. I am looking forward to start read. In the preface it says “certain mathematical and economic skills are required to fully understand and evaluate the planning procedures discussed and evaluated in technical sections in a number of chapters. These sections are necessary to advance the theory of democratic planning and should be of primary interest to readers who have those skills.”
I don´t have all the skills needed to understand all the nitty gritty in the technical sections of the book. But I would very much like to learn moore about this. To understand the equations and the computational steps and maybee test this on toy data och real data.
Are there some plans to start a study group or maybee a online course? It would be a great project to give more people the opportunity to learn more about the mathematical technique to develop a democratic economic planning.
