Abstract

By combining the general characteristics of economic system and economic agents with methodologies of multi-agent system analysis and development in the scope of software engineering and computer science, this work proposes an integrative framework that provides standardization for agent-based modeling in economics. This framework serves as a standard for analyzing from `bottom-up' the economic system that embeds with the properties of complexity in structure, heterogeneity in agents' beliefs, and interactions among agents' behaviors. It serves as a guidance on designing a standardized agent-based model for economic system. This standardized agent-based model works as the system model of economic system that can be used and reused among interdisciplinary research across economists and computer scientists.
