Dynamics of Artificial Markets on Irregular Topologies
We investigate the factors that influence the stability of artificial markets. We consider particularly the cases of goods, labour and money markets. On the one hand, we show that all the agents belonging to circuits of goods and labour markets remain available during the whole simulation. These particular topologies are stable. On the other hand, in the contrary, we show that the money market is sensitive to the existence of circuits. Systems with circuits crash and become chaotic with short-term loan duration.
