Abstract

Some general features of kinetic multi-agent models are reviewed, with particular attention to the relation between the agent saving propensities and the form of the equilibrium wealth distribution. The effect of a finite cutoff of the saving propensity distribution on the corresponding wealth distribution is studied. Various results about kinetic multi-agent models are collected and used to construct a realistic wealth distribution with zero limit for small values of wealth, an exponential form at intermediate and a power law tail at larger values of wealth.
