K. K. Fung is professor of economics at the University of Memphis. His previous works on system dynamics simulations have appeared in System Dynamics Review. He manually played with Maruyama’s model using different initial configurations many years ago and has always wanted to computerize the exercise for wider dissemination. But until the advent of the Internet and the recent publication of AgentSheets (a visual interactive simulation program), this dream has remained elusive.
