This paper proposes a would-be-worlds browser for socio-economic systems, a new constructive approach of agent-based simulation. As a case study, we applied this approach to the marketing area. First, we extracted consumption personality, behavior valuables of consumers, from the real purchase data. Then, an agent-based model of marketing was built incorporating them as agents' parameters. This approach tries to create interesting simulation path(s) by segmenting and merging simulation paths. Finally characteristics of target consumers could be identified by the marketing simulation.
