"A Framework for agent-based computational economics in economic geography"
SubjectEconomic geography.; Economics--Research.; Economics--Mathematical models.; Economics--Computer simulation.
Economic geography is the study of how economic agents organize themselves in the economy. The name suggests that economists and geographers have been working together to build models. However, this is contrary to the fact. A dissonance has arisen between economists and geographers in the last decade. The source of the problem is methodological differences. The difference are vast enough where it is difficult to merge the methodology of economists with those of a geographer. However, recent advancement in agent--based computational economics (ACE) allows us to build a framework that meets the needs of economists and geographers. This paper develops an ACE framework where economists and geographers can collaborate.
