Simulation Programming Skills and Python

Hello all. I have a few questions about simulation programming. One, do 
all programmers know to how to code a simulation? By simulation I mean a 
model of real world relationships (i.e. like Civilization which is a 
simulation of ruling nations through various historical settings). For 
example, could someone who codes word processing application necessarily 
know how to do a simulation of economic relationships between banks and 
enterprises if he/she had access to an economist? Is the skill of being 
able to translate in one's head realworld relationships into a model 
represented by code an inherent/native skill of all programmers? Two, is 
Python a good language for simulation programming?

Thank you all!
