  • Software

    Here you can find information about Jamel (Java Agent-based Macro-Economic Laboratory) that I am currently developing with Dr. P. Seppecher (University of Paris-North and University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, France). This is a macro-economic agent-based model with heterogeneous households, heterogeneous firms and a banking sector. It provides a fully decentralized and stock-flow consistent framework for the analysis of economic dynamics.
