It’s easy enough to get from atoms to thermodynamics by making assumptions about homogeneity, indistinguishability and so on – I’ve never found making the same assumptions about human ‘atoms’ very convincing. In the same way that doing molecular dynamics allows you to avoid worrying about the stat-mech, economic simulations at the agent level could avoid the classical approximations.
