To study the impact of asteroid mining on equality, we need to measure the global equity, so we developed the NRI (National Resources Index) model, with 18 secondary indicators and 6 primary indicators to measure the NRI for 17 sample countries. We simulated the complete process of asteroid mining and combine linear programming models and Monte Carlo methods to simulate the development and profitability of each country over the next 100 years. we built the AMP (Asteroid Mining Profit) model. Then we took into account the devaluation of minerals. By using the Fisher equation to quantify the gold price changes.
