The leaders of the world are flying the economy by the seat of their pants, say J. Doyne Farmer and Duncan Foley. There is, however, a better way to help guide financial policies. 
A Study of Severe Disruption in an Artificial Economy
We analyze an artificial economy model designed to handle severe non-equilibrium situations. This agent-based model is intended to allow innovation in the form of new technologies, producers and co...
The Future of Agent-Based Modeling
In this paper, I elaborate on the role of agent-based (AB) modeling for macroeconomic research. My main tenet is that the full potential of the AB approach has not been realized yet. This potential
Agent-based computational economics: a short introduction
TLDR
A brief overview of the main characteristics of agent-based computational economics is provided, with respect to analytical models, and its weaknesses are discussed.
Complex agent-based macroeconomics: a research agenda for a new paradigm
This article discusses some issues and challenges facing modern macroeconomics. We argue for the necessity to replace the reductionist approach at the heart of mainstream DSGE models with an approach
Agent-based Models and Causality : A Methodological Appraisal
Computational agent-based models are entering the toolbox of quantitative sociologists. However, markedly contrasting views still exist as to its capacity to contribute to causally-oriented empiric
Novel Modelling of the Operation of the Financial Intermediary System – Agent-based Macro Models
The study describes three agent-based macro models – expanded with the banking sector – that may later, following adequate further development, serve as bases for regulatory decisions. By presenting

Agent-based modeling and economic theory: where do we stand?
This paper provides a survey of the development and contributions of agent-based modeling to economic analysis, without any claim to be exhaustive. Our perspective is particularly shaped by the

Agent-based computational economics (ACE) is “the computational study of economic processes modeled as dynamic systems of interacting agents.” This new perspective offered by agent-based approach
Critical Review of Agent-Based Models
In this chapter we present a critical discussion of some of the most representative Agent-Based Models (ABM hereafter) of Economics. We embed them in a framework which highlights their key principles
