Abstract: In this smalltalk I’ll explain the importance of modelling risk perception by using agent based model methodology. In what concerns risk, perception is a critical step that occurs before decision making process and influences the way in how we decide under uncertainty conditions. The relevance of perception is so important that we need to distinguish perceived risk from effective risk. Tax evasion is an excellent case study to tackled this problem.
