Wealth Distribution

This model simulates the distribution of wealth, based on the work done by Robert Axtell. Wealth is represented as an amount of grain. We see Pareto's Law, which describes how a small number of people acquire most of the available wealth (leaving a disproportionately large number of poor).

For detailed instructions on using the program, take a look at the info window from the Wealth Distribution model.
