    Abstract

    The agent-based computational economical model for the emergence of money from the initial barter trading, inspired by Menger's postulate that money can spontaneously emerge in a commodity exchange economy, is extensively studied. The model considered, while manageable, is sufficiently complex, however. It already is able to reveal phenomena that can be interpreted as emergence and collapse of money as well as the related competition effects. In particular, it is shown that - as an extra emerging effect - the money lifetimes near the critical threshold value develop multiscaling, which allow one to set parallels to critical phenomena and, thus, to the real financial markets.
