Pareto law in a kinetic model of market with random saving propensity
AbstractWe have numerically simulated the ideal-gas models of trading markets, where each agent is identified with a gas molecule and each trading as an elastic or money-conserving two-body collision. Unlike in the ideal gas, we introduce (quenched) saving propensity of the agents, distributed widely between the agents (0⩽λ<1). The system remarkably self-organizes to a critical Pareto distribution of money P(m)∼m−(ν+1) with ν≃1. We analyze the robustness (universality) of the distribution in the model. We also argue that although the fractional saving ingredient is a bit unnatural one in the context of gas models, our model is the simplest so far, showing self-organized criticality, and combines two century-old distributions: Gibbs (1901) and Pareto (1897) distributions.
