FU Berlin


This project aims to develop and analyse a series of agent-based models which extend a standard economic growth model with elements representing directed technical change, a labour market with search, and expectation dynamics of the economic agents in the system.

It wants to contribute to mathematisation of economic agent-based models by investigating how far such models can be formulated as iterated games on networks and/or Markov processes and what can be gained by doing so. In application terms, it wants to help develop a theory of Green Growth transitions, that is, make explicit mechanisms through which an economy can switch to a low carbon structure that at the same time comes with benefits in economic and social dimensions.
