[Home]ProfitSeekingBarterAgent

HomePage | RecentChanges | Preferences

A subclass of BarterAgent which always asks for more than it really needs. For this reason it makes a profit on it's barters.

Anecdotal evidence gives cases of this outperforming ordinary barter. Probably because an agent which asks for more than it needs can act as a channel from a surplus in one part of it's neighbourhood to a need in another.
