Book Description

In contrast to mainstream , complexity theory conceives the as a complex system of heterogeneous interacting agents characterised by limited information and bounded rationality. Agent Based (ABMs) are the analytical and computational tools developed by the proponents of this emerging methodology. Aimed at students and scholars of contemporary , this book includes a comprehensive for agent-based computational economics, now quickly becoming the new way to study evolving economic . Leading scholars in the field explain how ABMs can be applied fruitfully to many real-world economic examples and represent a great advancement over mainstream approaches. The essays discuss the methodological bases of agent-based approaches and demonstrate step-by-step how to build, simulate and analyse ABMs and how to validate their outputs empirically using the data. They also present a wide set of applications of these models to key economic topics, including the business cycle, labour markets, and economic growth.
