Modeling Macroeconomies As Open-Ended Dynamic Systems of Interacting Agents
This study discusses the potential applicability of Agent-based Computational Economics (ACE) for macroeconomic modeling, with a particular stress on the following three issues: (1) taxonomy - what types of agents for macroeconomic models?; (2) scale robustness - how many agents for macroeconomic models?; and (3) empirical validation - connecting to data. Annotated pointers to ACE macroeconomic research can be accessed here: http://www.econ.iastate.edu/tesfatsi/amulmark.htm
