Minsky Alternatives

    Minsky is described as 'enables the simulation of models (particularly from economics) defined in terms of coupled ordinary differential equations. The models are defined using a drawing canvas (rather like VisSim), and a double entry bookkeeping system known as a Godley table'. There are six alternatives to Minsky for Windows, Linux, Mac and Online / Web-based. The best alternative is Xcos, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Minsky are Simulink (Paid), Caedium (Freemium), Insight Maker (Free, Open Source) and EMSO simulator (Free, Open Source).
