This book is based on communications given at AE’2006 (Aalborg, Denmark) – the second symposium on Artificial Economics. Perceiving the economy as a complex dynamic system demands new tools for its study. As a constructive simulation method, Agent-Based Computational Economics (ACE) has in recent years proven its strength and extensive applicability. Fields of study are widely spread within economics, with a cluster around financial markets. Coverage in this volume extends both to well known questions of economics, like the existence of market efficiency, and to new questions raised by the new analytical tools, for example questions related to networks of social interaction.
