Abstract : The decision module for the simulation will be designed to provide the country specific input values of variables to each of the three sector modules, oil, agriculture, and human resources. For the purpose of the decision module, nations will be conceptualized as goal seeking systems. Thus the mix of input variables and their values represent a choice of inputs that the decision- makers perceive to be relevant to controlling their perceived environment with respect to a desired environmental state.
