5th Agent-Based Macroeconomics Summer School (ABaMSS)
19th February – 23rd February 2024 | SALA 229 Universidade Federal do
Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)

The summer school aims to provide an overview of Agent-Based Macroeconomics (ABM) from both theoretical and applied perspectives. It starts motivating the utilization of a complexity approach to macroeconomics, rooted in models with heterogenous, interacting agents. It then extensively presents the Agent-Based Computational Economics approach, elucidating various macroeconomic models accounting for endogenous growth, business cycles, crises, development, and climate-economic coevolution. The presentation of the models includes potential applications to economic policy issues such as fiscal, monetary, innovation, industrial, labor, and climate-change interventions. Throughout the course, participants will engage in ABM implementation laboratories, where they will be exposed to a wide range of techniques, ranging from basic to state-of-the-art procedures.
