More Heat Than Light: Economics as Social Physics, Physics as Nature's Economics
Cambridge University Press, 29 nov. 1991 - 450 pages
This is a history of how physics has drawn some inspiration from economics and how economics has sought to emulate physics, especially with regard to the theory of value. The author traces the development of the energy concept in Western physics and its subsequent effect on the invention and promulgation of neoclassical economics, the modern orthodox theory.
