    • Research initiative to understand & model state stability: Exploiting system dynamics. 

      Choucri, Nazli; Madnick, Stuart E.; Siegel, Michael D. (© The System Dynamics Society, 2005)
      The 9/11 Commission Report states: “We learned that the institutions charted with protecting ...national security did not understand how grave this threat can be, and did not adjust their policies, plans, and practices to ...
    • Resource scarcity and foreign policy: A simulation model of international conflict 

      Choucri, Nazli; Laird, Michael; Meadows, Dennis L. (© Center for International Studies, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1972)
      This paper describes the initial stages of an interdisciplinary research project designed to trace the effects of domestic resource needs and scarcities in advanced technological societies upon international behavior. Our ...
    • Short-run energy-economy interactions in Egypt 

      Choucri, Nazli; Supriya, Lahiri (© Elsevier B.V., 1984-08)
      This paper discusses the short-run adjustment mechanism of the Egyptian economy to changes in the domestic price of oil. The effects of oil price increases have been analysed in the framework of a short-run macroeconomic ...

    • Towards a forecasting model of energy politics: International Perspectives 

      Choucri, Nazli; Ross, David S.; Meadows, Dennis L. (© Sage Publications, 1976)
      Almost everyone recognizes an energy problem but uncertainties remain about its political and economic implications, both domestic and international. Indeed, there is disagreement on the extent to which it is a crisis. The ...
    • Understanding & Modeling State Stability: Exploiting System Dynamics 

      Choucri, Nazli; Electris, C.; Goldsmith, D.; Mistree, D.; Madnick, Stuart E.; e.a. (IEEE, 2006-03-04)
      The potential loss of state stability in various parts of the world is a source of threat to U.S. national security. Every case is unique, but there are common processes. Accordingly, we develop a system dynamics model of ...
    • Using system dynamics to model and better understand state stability 

      Choucri, Nazli; Goldsmith, Daniel; Madnick, Stuart E.; Mistree, Dinsha; Morrison, J. Bradley; e.a. (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007-07-01)
      The world can be complex and dangerous - the loss of state stability of countries is of increasing concern. Although every case is unique, there are important common processes. We have developed a system dynamics model of ...
