Economic Modelling

Threadneedle is not just a banking simulation project. It also allows simple models of market based economies to be constructed, and monetary flows within these models to be explored. Initially we intended this to be for testing purposes, and allow us to construct experiments exploring differences between economies with constant money supplies and those with varying ones, but it has already thrown up interesting insights of its own, as can be seen in this short lecture.
