Modeling Housing Markets: Update

A while ago I blogged about the a simple NetLogo model by Nigel Gilbert et al. which explores how some of the main features of the English housing market emerges from the interactions between buyers, realtors and sellers (click here to run the model). I have just come across an audio recording with accompanying slide presentation by Nigel Gilbert’s which enhances the previous post and thought it was worth sharing. Click here to listen and see the slides. The talk is hosted on the SIMIAN (Simulation Innovation: a Node) project website which aims to promote and develop social simulation methods in the UK.
