Discussion 2.

In Chapter 13, the author states “several practice-oriented agent-based simulation models have been developed that are aimed to support policy making”. Research two of these and discuss them, clarifying how they are “agent-based”, what their game entails, and how they tie into policy-making. You’ll need two references with citations for each reference to do this correctly.

A) Create a new thread. As indicated above, find two examples of agent-based games.
