The Random Handout Problem - A Simulation

A quick simulation inspired by a thought experiment from Uri Wilensky, who studies agent based modeling at Northwestern University.

The question he poses is counterintuitive:

Imagine a room full of 100 people with 100 dollars each. With every tick of the clock, every person with money gives a dollar to one randomly chosen other person. After some time progresses, how will the money be distributed?

Take a look at the notebook for a full explanation.
