The models in Agent-based Modelling in Economics were developed using NetLogo 5.2.
In December 2016, NetLogo 6.0 was introduced. Some of the models failed to run at all under this new version and others have displayed intermittent errors. The problems found have been corrected but others may emerge with use.
Below the models are offered in both versions.
To download NetLogo
NetLogo can be downloaded from here:
You will be offered a choice of versions. We recommend that you use NetLogo 5.2 for running the models from the book.
(Note that you can use more than one version of NetLogo on your computer. However, a NetLogo file will always open using the latest version of NetLogo. So if you have both the latest version of NetLogo and NetLogo 5.2 on your computer, open NetLogo 5.2 and then use “File”, “Open” to access the model.)
