Agent-Based Financial Markets

See several of my latest working papers for information on the markets that I'm working on. My older survey is available in the Handbook of Computational Economics, vol 2 edited by Leigh Tesfatsion and Kenneth L. Judd, North-Holland, 2006. Currently, a new survey is in the works. Should be available summer 2014.

The Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) has allowed me to fund a small team of programmers who are currently working to build up some benchmark models for use in both teaching and research. We have some basic models ready and will be making the code available later in the summer, or early fall. I will soon create a page which details what we are working on. We are open to suggestions on where to direct some of our programming efforts. Stay tuned for more information on this project.
