Makarov V.L., Bakhtizin A.R. (2012): The new form of mixed economy with rationing: agent - based approach. Proceedings of the 4th World Congress on Social Simulation (WCSS 2012), National Chengchi University, Taipei, Taiwan, September 4-7, 2012.
There is sizable number of mixed economy' types. Generally speaking every existing economy is mixed one in a sense that it uses various economic mechanisms. Every country tries to find optimal combination of the mechanisms. The most famous mechanisms are market, rationing, planning, direct distribution, gifts, some others.
In the paper we explore the rationing as a way to implement a variety of incentives for people' activity. We assume that the population is divided to the six social clusters with different incentives to work. The first social cluster (business oriented people) has standard incentive: getting profit. Other clusters' members (state and military servants, scientists, art workers, priests, etc.) try to lift on the social stairs, getting higher rank. Having a position of a certain rank a person obtains the possibility to consume goods according to fixed norms.
