The methods we use to study policy issues must be able to apprehend the complexity inherent in these issues. This chapter describes some of the characteristics of policy issues that make them complex. Simulations are proposed as a class of readily available computational tools that can capture some of that complexity and can provide insights to inform policy decisions and actions.
