A highly interesting concept a former classmate of mine is working on:
M.E.S.S. is an agent based simulation I am working on that will attempt to simulate social behavior at an agent level for the purpose of seeing how economic activity plays out under various policies. The ultimate goal of this simulation is to be able to replicate past economic events, with the hopes of predicting outcomes of fiscal, regulatory and tax policies.
Can’t wait to see where this goes.
