This is the case for both cognitive and behaviorist models; indeed, the purpose of the last chapter was to show that traditional long-run com­ parative-statics theory is applicable even if individual decision makers eschew cognition entirely and react wholly passively to environmental stimuli. The congruence between feedback and optimization theories vanishes when we turn to the analysis of short-run or disequilibrium phenomena. By their very nature, optimization models are inapplicable to disequi­ librium states, and even the most elementary questions of dynamic adjustment have proved to be resistant to analysis by traditional means.

Successes tend to focus behavior, whereas failures tend to diffuse it, and this property will be seen to be responsible for many of the most interesting implications of experientially based models, as well as for a considerably heightened potential for empirical realism. CHAPTER 3 Behavior in the short run We demonstrated in Chapter 2 that under relatively weak assumptions, feedback processes will provide convergence to equilibrium states that have the properties of optima. Thus, these feedback models are entirely consistent with the standard comparative-statics equilibrium theories used in economics, and the analysis of long-run responses to changes in exogenous variables can follow the usual comparative-statics pattern.
