Markt und Maus (Market and Mouse) Stefan Pach

How can we make mice live by the rules of investment banking?

To improve the understanding of the dynamics of finance markets the "Market and Mouse"-System tries to simulate a part of the fiscal universe. The main analysis focuses on the aspect of investment banking. This is the field with the biggest possible profit.
"Market and Mouse" investigates how mice decide if they have to choose between high risk but high value options and less lucrative possibilities.
