Where Does Theory Have It Right? A Comparison of Theory-Driven and Empirical Agent Based Models

Firouzeh Taghikhah, Tatiana Filatova, Alexey Voinov
2021 Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation  
We propose a comparison framework to address this methodological dilemma, which quantitatively explores the gap in predictions between theory-and data-driven ABMs.  ...  However, it remains unclear to what extent theory-driven ABMs mislead, if at all, a choice of a policy when compared to the outcomes of models with empirical micro-foundations.  ...  Acknowledgments Authors wish to thank the editor and three anonymous reviewers for their valuable comments and suggestions on this manuscript.  ...
