HighPerformanceCoder writes "Minsky is an open source visual programming tool for modelling dynamical systems, oriented towards economics modelling, in particular supporting nonconventional dynamics systems model. It is an initiative of Prof. Steve Keen to help reform the economics profession.

Steve has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund further development of the software package. If you're interested in alternative theories of economics, in mathematical modelling of dynamics systems, or visual programming software for mathematical modelling, this project should be of interest. Get involved by funding it, contributing programming time, or even just joining the beta testing programme."
