Abstract

The present work provides an open-source agent-based model addressed to the investigation of economic systems dynamics. This includes a general framework where interested researchers can insert and develop additional elements to analyze more specific issues. The software is made available with a collaborative intent. Cooperation among scholars interested in different aspects of human behavior will make it possible to endow economic agents with traditional or more recent and sophisticated knowledge-based decision techniques. This process will also deliver a tool for supporting policy makers decisions. In order to make the cooperation possible and to provide scholars with a userready tool that can be promptly applied for simulations in research, a particular effort in providing a comprehensive documentation (UML, Javadoc, ETEX, HTML) describing how to use, develop and improve the features of the current version of the model is provided together with the open-source code at https://github.com/gfgprjects/gabriele.
