La simulation économique : expérimentation et apprentissage de la réalité économique


  • Buda, Rodolphe


Economic simulation - as economic pattern simulation use - which is already a useful tool of searchers and managers, would be a tool of economic teacher. When teacher want explain economic theories, he can't do experiment, hence simulation would take place experiment. Simulation is an analytical (teacher can study some economic poli- cies) and synthetic (teacher can build economies) tool to get Eco- nomic more concrete. First of all, teacher has to present economic agent (through an economic press analysis) and decision process (e.g: through the Game theory point of view). Economic simulation teaches by experience difficults of optimal economic policy and, in the same time, difficult of economic modelling. Our purpose is to teach economics, not to ordinary pupils but to rational pupils.
