Self-organization in Economics. Introduction
Self-organization can be defined in many ways. Briefly, we can say that a selforganizing
system is a system whose basic structure changes relatively to experience
without explicit constraints from environment. Form constraints result from the
interactions between the components of the system. For example, according to Paul
Cilliers: The capacity for self-organization is a property of complex systems which
enables them to develop or change interval structure spontaneously and adaptively
in order to cope with or manipulate, their environment (1998).
