Title: Will Systems Work? A search for models for the 21^<st> century
Authors: Gary, Metcalf
Keywords: systems

Issue Date: Nov-2005
Publisher: JAIST Press
Abstract: Many people intuitively recognize large-scale problems as complex. Two recent problems in the US - terrorism and the resulting military response by the US, and the hurricanes that hit the Gulf Coast region - have highlighted such complexities. Even more, government responses have converged in unexpected ways. Systems, as a discipline, has sought to address complex problems, but has not been effective thus far in being accepted as the means for doing so by the public at-large, or by key decision-makers. The role that economics plays as a regulating force is proposed for comparison with roles that systems might play in the future.
