A simulation approach to a world with learning
The main objective of the firm in economics-based models is to maximize profit. Dropping this objective in order to make the models more realistic complicates the analysis and is seldom done, thus leaving management action out of the picture. In this paper we try to understand how management decisions give rise to aggregate results. In particular, we develop a simulation model of an economy in which emphasis is placed on managers' decision-making criteria. The key decision managers have to make is which projects their firms will undertake. Project selection has an impact on the firm, as the firm's profile may change through learning.
