A decade after the financial crisis, there is a growing consensus that economics has failed and needs to go back to the drawing board. The E-mail message field is required. In this timely and illuminating book, David Orrell brings us to the frontier of where economics, physics and psychology intersect. Awards Finalist: Canadian Science Writers' Association book award 2007 Finalist: National Business Book Award 2011. The book easily switches between physical, economic and metaphysical conceptions of value, revealing their hidden parallels and paradoxes. Q: The exciting and sometimes disturbing properties of money, which have fascinated and intrigued its users over millennia, have been largely written out of the story. Or, perhaps, I should say popular non-science, as Orrell shows just how devastatingly traditional economics uses the tools of science without having a scientific basis.

Had some interesting thoughts, facts referenced well enough but too little details. What is perhaps most surprising about it is just how readable -- yet thoroughly researched -- it is. Book will arrive in about 2-4 weeks. Constructing a less mechanistic and even more revolutionary science of quantum economics, David Orrell proves it so. After you've forgotten about the latest wheeze about the financial crisis, you'll be returning to this book. However, this shouldn't get in the way of the fact that where with Economyths Orrell concentrated on showing what was wrong with contemporary economics, here he offers a radically different way to approach it. An ecological economist, in this view, is someone who understands ecology and economics, while appreciating that — although they have aspects in common — they are not the same thing.

The usage here reflects the fact that standard models treat crises as being caused by random external shocks. A decade after the financial crisis, there is a growing consensus that economics has failed and needs to go back to the drawing board. This book therefore starts with the meaning of the phrase 'how much' - or, to use the Latin word, quantum. When James Clerk Maxwell came up with the equations of electromagnetism, he first used a mechanical model. It had too many strawman arguments, and didn't deliver on the promise of something new. David Orrell argues that it has been trying to solve the wrong problem all along. You'll never look at money the same again!.

Instead, it should be the science of money which plays a surprisingly small role in mainstream theory. For those of us who feel trapped in the professional cocoons of the like-minded, this book offers a chance to escape from the iron cages we have built. He studied mathematics at the University of Alberta, and obtained his Ph. The introductory section giving background on quantum theory is probably necessary, but I can imagine many who aren't scientists, or don't read popular science, not getting past it. You'll never look at money the same again! What is perhaps most surprising about it is just how readable -- yet thoroughly researched -- it is. Just as physicists learn about matter by studying the exchange of particles at the subatomic level, so economics should begin by analysing the nature of money-based transactions. His work in mathematical modeling and complex systems research has led him to diverse areas such as weather forecasting, particle accelerator design, economics, and cancer biology.

Instead, it should be the science of money which plays a surprisingly small role in mainstream theory. I was, therefore, really looking forward to reading Orrell's new book - until I saw the title. In the process, classical economics is profaned to good effect and a quantum future glimmers as a real possibility. And the last chapter we-conomics, claims that quantum theory implies that we should abandon the selfishness of mainstream economics.

Quantum Economics

quantum economics the new science of money

This book is remarkable, but has a couple of significant issues. From quantum physics to the dualistic properties of money, via the emerging areas of quantum finance and quantum cognition, this profoundly important book reveals that quantum economics is to neoclassical economics what quantum physics is to classical physics - a genuine turning point in our understanding. Yes, this is to some extent a metaphorical use of quantum theory - but this isn't something physicists should turn their nose up at, because physics uses analogy all the time.

From quantum physics to the dualistic properties of money, via the emerging areas of quantum finance and quantum cognition, this profoundly important book reveals that quantum economics is to neoclassical economics what quantum physics is to classical physics - a genuine turning point in our understanding. And money is a substance that turns out to have a quantum nature of its own.

Most of the time, these professors do not disclose these conflicts of interest, and most of the time their universities look the other way. Economists often either seem to be genuinely unaware that there is an ethical component to their work, including things like forecasts, or take it for granted that they are acting correctly. When we describe light, for example, as particles or waves or disturbances in quantum field these are all models.

Orrell makes it clear that conventional economics really doesn't deal properly with money - in fact it largely ignores it, other than as a measure. What is perhaps most surprising about it is just how readable — yet thoroughly researched — it is. This was later translated into a mathematical model - but a model in the scientific sense is just a quantitative analogy. From quantum physics to the dualistic properties of money, via the emerging areas of quantum finance and quantum cognition, this profoundly important book reveals that quantum economics is to neoclassical economics what quantum physics is to classical physics — a genuine turning point in our understanding. It's trying to tie it in with quantum theory that is the worst kind of scientism. . I lost count how many times the main points were made, and how often I felt I could not really see what argument Orrell was presenting.

A decade after the financial crisis, there is a growing consensus that economics has failed and needs to go back to the drawing board. But the worst problem is the misuse of quantum ideas.
