%A Murat Yildizoglu %O JEL Classification: O3, L1, D83 %T Modeling Adaptive Learning: R&D Strategies in the Model of Nelson & Winter (1982) %X This article aims to test the relevance of learning through Genetic Algorithms (GA) and Learning Classifier Systems (LCS), in opposition with fixed R&D rules, in a simplified version of the evolutionary industry model of Nelson and Winter. These three R&D strategies are compared from the points of view of industry performance (welfare): the results of simulations clearly show that learning is a source of technological and social efficiency. %D 2001 %K Learning, Learning Classifier Systems, Bounded Rationality, Technical Progress, Innovation %L cogprints3864
