The Notion of Entropy in an Economic Analysis: the Classical Examples and New Perspectives
This article deals with the notion of entropy in its applicability to economics. Briefly, it regards some classical cases of such a use as the labour concept of Podolinsky and the bioeconomics of
Information, entropy, value, and price formation: An econophysical perspective
Abstract From an econophysical point of view, this paper deals with a pivotal old topic that still remains paradoxically unsolved in economics: the relationship between labor and value under the

Using Thermodynamics Entropy To Modelling Economic Value Added Analysis of Manufacturing Firms ( Iranian Chemical Industries Case Study)
Based on natural Law's capabilities in the Economic modeling, this study compares the economic value added (EVA) in various groups of chemical industries by thermodynamics principles. At first the
Energy, Entropy, Constraints, and Creativity in Economic Growth and Crises
TLDR
Biophysical analyses of economic growth that disregard this theorem and mend the neoclassical deficiencies are sketched, showing that energy’s output elasticity is much larger than its cost share and elucidate the existence of bidirectional causality between energy conversion and economic growth.
Energy and the Economics of Sustainability. The Entropy Paradox
Abstract This paper analyzes the concept of entropy, as understood by both the weak sustainability and strong sustainability scholars. In seeking an answer to why such an apparently rigid concept
How Economists Can Use the Laws of Physics On the Example of the Notion of Entropy in its Application to Some Economic Conceptions
This article deals with the notion of entropy in its applicability to economics. Briefly, it regards some classical cases of such a use as the labour concept of Podolinsky and the bioeconomics of
The Extension of Statistical Entropy Analysis to Chemical Compounds
TLDR
The SEA concept is extended to make it applicable to systems in which the chemical speciation is of particular importance, and the results are discussed for four variations of the crop farming system, showing that the efficiency of crop farming can be expressed by eSEA.
The Influence of Thermodynamic Ideas on Ecological Economics: An Interdisciplinary Critique
The influence of thermodynamics on the emerging transdisciplinary field of 'ecological economics‘ is critically reviewed from an interdisciplinary perspective. It is viewed through the lens provided
Energy Capture, Technological Change, and Economic Growth: An Evolutionary Perspective
After several decades of discussions, mainstream economics still does not recognize the crucial role that energy plays in the economic process. Hence, the purpose of this article is to reformulate a
