Medical Breakthrough: Low Dosage “Piketty” Prevents “FT” Fits (II/II), by H. Benisty (co-author with Timiota)

We’ve shown in the first part of this post that a population of actors effecting “random walks” by betting their wealth daily, or more precisely a modest part of their fortune that lies above the poverty level, will eventually see a small group of “very rich” emerge, making everybody else comparatively poorer.
We now increase the number of actors to N=3600, all other hypotheses remaining the same, to get a more clear distinction between a continuum of the society and a few dominant elements. We’ll show how a small dose of “Pikettisation” avoids paralysis.
First, let’s study the situation as is, to identify the problem. Here’s a typical simulation with N=3600 actors during 35000 days. [See ((2)) in the appendix for a more detailed explanation, … even if you have already read ((1))!]
