Response to worrying trends in econophysics
This article is a response to the recent “Worrying Trends in Econophysics” critique written by four respected theoretical economists . Two of the four have written books and papers that provide very useful critical analyses of the shortcomings of the standard textbook economic model, neo-classical economic theory [2,3] and have even endorsed my book . Largely, their new paper reflects criticism that I have long made [4,5,6,7,] and that our group as a whole has more recently made . But I differ with the authors on some of their criticism, and partly with their proposed remedy.
