  abstract =     "In spirit of the earlier works done by Arthur (1992)
                 and Palmer et al. (1993), this paper models speculators
                 with genetic programming (GP) in a production economy
                 (Muthian Economy). Through genetic programming, we
                 approximate the consequences of speculating about the
                 speculations of others, including the price volatility
                 and the resulting welfare loss. Some of the patterns
                 observed in our simulations are consistent with
                 findings in experimental markets with human subjects.
                 For example, we show that GP-based speculators can be
                 noisy by nature. However, when appropriate financial
                 regulations are imposed, GP-based speculators can also
                 be more informative than noisy.",
