Il montre entre autre à quel point la plupart des modèles écnomiques encore utilisés aujourd'hui font appel à des équations inspirées de la physique mécanique, dont les phénomènes sont reversibles, alors qu'il serait plus réaliste d'emprunter les modèles de la thermodynamique, avec ses modèles de phénomènes non réversibles dans le cas de l'économie où de plus en plus d'énergie est dépensée sans compter ou presque, se fait au prix d'une dégradation de la qualité même de cette énergie, ce que les scientifiques appellent augmentation de l'entropie. It's a tough book to read all the way through. Econodynamics. It is a huge, dense and rich tome, rich in the manner of chocolate mousse but similarly hard to take in large quantities.

The Entropy Law and the Economic Process (Georgescu-Roegen, 1971) began this mode of analysis by building upon classical conceptions of the entropy law as applied to economic analysis. This is real.

We argue that a reformulated second law of thermodynamics recently employed by Schneider and Kay [Schneider, E., Kay, J., 1994. After making many technical contributions to economic theory, Georgescu-Roegen returned to this insight in his important 1971 book, The Entropy Law and the Economic Process (Harvard University Press, Cambridge, 1971), where he outlines his concept of bioeconomics. The entropic nature of the economic process, which degrades natural resources and pollutes the environment, constitutes the present danger. "The entropy of the physical universe increases constantly because there is a continuous and irrevocable qualitative degradation of order into chaos. Economists still do not seem to realize that, since the product of the economic process is waste, waste is an inevitable result of that process and ceteris paribus increases in greater proportion than the intensity of economic activity.” ― Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen, The Entropy Law and the Economic Process To see what your friends thought of this book, Essential reading for social scientists, public policy makers, aspiring politicians, and just for about anyone with interest in how our socioeconomic systems depend on laws of nature.

The basic laws of Newtonian physics were assumed and used in the statistical mechanics (the particle-analytic version, one might say, of thermodynamics) that describes many-particle systems. Economists still do not seem to realize that, since the product of the economic process is waste, waste is an inevitable result of that process and ceteris paribus increases in greater proportion than the intensity of economic activity.”, “Indeed, only what does not have a tangible measure can easily be exaggerated in importance.
