I began to tweet again on March 1, spirited on by the UWV ICT-plan-and-litigation situation. My agent-based modeling perspective leads to a whole collection of tweets which I can chain together, I just noticed. I will use the current chain to explain my modeling assumptions.
My main assumption is that agent based modeling and simulation of a complex situation will help find promising strategies for improvement. Another assumption is that modeling with the four (neo-Durkheimian) prototypes sketched earlier trumps modeling with homo economicus alone.
The four incommensurable `currencies’ that help express the four related values allow to formulate richer theories that remain closer to common sense than what price-mechanism related cost-benefit results makes possible. One problem, though.
