Simtrade–A Computer Model Simulating World Trade for Three or More Countries

Tom Kennedy

Abstract—Simtrade is a computational model that simulates international trade between multiple countries. It predicts the economic status of countries based on purchasing preferences and yearly events. It generates trade activity and tracks the migration of currencies, using that data to predict exchange rates. It also follows the movements of assets and calculates bond ratings. The results are a yearly tabulation of economic aggregates including realistic levels of trade, debt and investment.

Index Terms—Currency migration, trade balance, current account (CA), financial account (FA), exchange rates.
