Description: Computer simulations furnish a means of gleaning insights into human social and economic behavior. The Sugarscape model is more a metaphor than a realistic depiction of society, but by providing insights into population growth, resource use, migration, economic development, conflict, and other global social processes, games played on the Sugarscape grid may help shape the policies needed to direct the future course of society..
