Welcome to OPTIMAES
Open Project to Investigate Money and Economic Systems
OPTIMAES is an Open Project To Investigate Money And Economic Systems.
It consists of two things :
agent based computer simulations to experiment with different economic systems. The simulations are free software, under the GNU GPL so you an download them, verify the results and make changes to explore variations and your own specific questions.
an online conversation. (It used to be in a wiki that documented both the experiments and the discussions around them. Now we have blog-comments and the potential for a “dialogue of models” on GitHub.)
