I'm curious about the role of energy in economies. The sun provides energy which is then used to do labour after being processed through plants and animals and humans. Marx talked about thermodynamics, and modern heterodox economists are talking about it too. A colleague of mine has done a computer simulation that shows that entropy plays a big role in creating inequality in randomly-generated exchanges of commodities; can you comment on bioeconomics or econophysics?
Do you like this suggestion?
