Dynamics Of A Service Economy Driven By Random Transactions
Agents buy and sell services. All services are of equal quality. Buyers choose sellers at random. Monetary and fiscal policies are imposed by a central bank and a central government. Credit is supplied by a commercial banking system. Propensities to buy, sell, and lend depend on account balances, interest rates, tax rates and loan default rates. Computer simulations track weekly sales, loans, account balances, commercial bank profits, solvency and compliance with reserve requirements, and government debt.
