Indeed in games of repeated play the ‘folk’ theorem tells us that virtually any sort of outcome is possible. Kirman accordingly recommends an intermediate modeling strategy regarding individual interaction ‘which lies between the two extremes’, including both indirect and direct interaction such that ‘agents communicate with some, but not necessarily all, other agents’ (Kirman 1997: 493). In this framework, there is a range of different ways of looking at the subject. At one end of the spectrum are ‘global interaction’ models in which individual agents may be capable of communicating with all other agents, but only communicate with some of them.

But the modus operandi of how Central Banks can, and now generally do, set interest rates so as to achieve price stability, and as a necessary adjunct of that economic stability, has been worked out in practice through the adoption of inflation targetry, initiated in New Zealand and Canada in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Thereafter Mervyn King has played a major role in developing the approach to include, for example, Inflation Reports and fan charts, and the subsequent work of academics such as Bernanke, McCallum, Svensson, John Taylor, Walsh and Woodford has brought theory into line with best practice.

In general, Kirman sees the investigation of different forms of local and global interaction as central to understanding the economy as a complex adaptive system. Particularly important is the emphasis this places on understanding individual behavior in terms of learning and adjustment to change. Note, then, that in standard general equilibrium dynamic models that emphasize convergence to equilibrium, individuals are assumed to learn relatively rapidly what optimal behavior requires, while at the same time the economic environment is assumed to change sufficiently slowly as to make further learning unnecessary.
