Evolutionary Modelling of Economic Change (EMEC)

Project Details


The purpose is to develop tools and models for the study of economic evolution. The main tool of the project is a system for evolutionary economic modelling called the Laboratory of Simulation Development (Lsd), which is still being improved by Marco Valente in collaboration with Esben Sloth Andersen and others. The Lsd system allows everyone with MS Windows or Unix/Linux to test existing evolutionary-economic models, to modify them, and (presupposing relevant skills) to develop totally new models. The task of the project is not only to contribute to the development of the Lsd system but also to model the dynamics of the economic division of labour and the problems of the network economy.
