Understanding Cooperative Consumer Purchasing with Agent-based Models

Economics Masters student Ethan Tremblay’s research on the cooperation dynamics of cooperative purchasing in food buying clubs uses an agent based modeling approach to understand the importance of factors like group size, reciprocity, and cumulative experience of cooperation among members. Ethan presented a draft of this model at the 2016 UMaine Student Research Symposium, #USRS16. Check out the poster and a sneak peak at early results here. Tremblay_ABM_Poster.pdf
