My academic interests involve public choice and the development of social norms for cooperation in the marketplace and the behavior of voting blocks. Recent work looks at the emergence of property rights “norms” among zero intelligence agents in an evolutionary context, and the dynamics of legislative party creation in an environment of stochastically voting voters.
This model explores the emergence of property norms among zero intelligence beings, e.g. butterflies and other animals.Tied to the paper of the same name, available at www.ejhammer.com .
This model accompanies a paper exploring the effects of endogenous turnout and political party formation, along with the effects of communication effectiveness.
