Abstract : Multi-agent system make it possible to investigate systems with complex interaction protocols and limited information sharing. Our objective in this paper is to emphasize the impact of exchange protocols in social networks. The presented MAS considers a loan-granting scenario where each agent can borrow/lend money to its neighbors and/or consume it. We define six interaction protocols, ranging from fixed equilibrium rate loans to double-free auctions, and we study their impact on the network structure and the global welfare of the economy. Further, the agent fitness is investigated in relation with its connectivity (number of neighbors) and eccentricity (longest path to the other agents).
