Abstract: Mutual relationship between the development of multiagent approaches and the information technologies, especially distributed intelligence is analyzed in this book. The possibilities of multiagent approaches in economics are demonstrated on a couple of applications. Applications concern the analysis of the development of market structure, the analysis of the dynamics of consumption structure, the analyses of migration and migration networks and the analyses of the system of universities both with optimizing agents and agents with procedural rationality. The specific multiagent model and simulation experiments for each application are described. The theoretical background is shortly described wherever necessary: postkeynesian theory of consumer choice for the analysis of the dynamics of consumption structure, motivation theory of A.H. Maslow and a simple neural network – perceptron – for the analyses of migration and migration networks and the difference between optimization and procedural rationality in the analyses of the system of universities.
