Initial Conditions: Each investor is endowed at time t D 0 with a total wealth of $1000, which is composed of 10 shares worth an initial price of $50 per share, and $500 in cash. 5 (for an annual dividend yield of about 4%). As will soon become evident, the dynamics are not sensitive to the particular choice of initial conditions. Figure 1 shows the price dynamics in a typical simulation with these parameters (simulations with the same parameters differ one from the other because of the different random dividend realizations).

Full Spectrum of EMB Investors Up to this point we have analyzed markets with at most three different subpopulations (one RII population and two EMB populations). The market dynamics we found displayed the empirically observed market anomalies, but they were unrealistic in the magnitude, frequency, and semi-predictability of booms and crashes.

Each product was assigned an “intrinsic quality” represented by an integer drawn at random from a distribution  q , and a set of I “hedonic attributes” represented by I positive integers in a range from 0 to some arbitrary, user selected number A. Consumers are represented by utility functions that are positively related to “quality” and negatively related to the difference between some desired set of hedonic attributes and the hedonic attributes of the product.
