Moneta is a simple agent-based free market simulator engine.

This engine consists of various „agents“ trading commodities, with emergent free-floating prices that rise and fall according to the laws of supply and demand.

This is based on the work of Jonathon Doran and Ian Parberry Emergent Economies for Role Playing Games. This is also inspired by the work of Lars Doucet and his BazaarBot project.

The eventual goal is to create an open-source „Economics engine“ for games and simulations, much like contemporary open-source „Physics engines“.
