Asymmetric Information Agent-Based model

In Spring 2006, I took a class on Agent-Based Computational Economics with Dr. Andreas Pape, avid researcher in the field. This was at a time when I had intentions of completing an Econ major alongside Computer Science at Oberlin, and so I created a model of Asymmetric Information and how it affects a randomized population of used-car buyers and sellers, some of whom are selling 'lemons' and some of whom can pick out a 'lemon' used car if they see one.

The model can be demoed on this page:
