Abstract

This paper develops further monetary aspects of a model, first set out as part of a paper by the author published in 2007, concerning the application of thermodynamic principles to economics. The model is backed up by statistical analysis of quarterly data of the UK and USA economies. The model sets out relationships between price, output volume, velocity of circulation and money supply, and develops an equation to measure entropy gain in an economic system, linked to interest rates. This paper was first released in August 2008, but has now been revised to reflect current thinking
