Simulating a Multiproduct Barter Exchange Economy
AbstractThe authors describe a multiproduct barter trading experiment in which students exchange real goods in an open market based on their own personal preference. The experiment is designed f or simulating a pure exchange market in order to demonstrate the role o f money and its functions in real economies by showing the limitations and inefficiencies of the traditional barter economy. In addition, t he simulation is very effective in highlighting some of the key feature s that an object that serves as money needs to possess in order to function as an efficient medium of exchange, unit of account, and st ore of value.
