Written in an informal and conversational style, The Self-Organizing Economy shows how models of self-organization, "order from stability", can be applied to economic phenomenon.

The book includes powerful insights of conventional economic analysis and strands from many disciplines, from location theory to biology, to create a surprising new view of how the economy forms structures in space and time.
