Energy, Complexity and Wealth Maximization

AYRES Robert U.
Energy, Complexity and Wealth Maximization Springer (forthcoming)

This book describes the evolution and mechanisms of natural wealth creation.
The author explains how natural wealth consists of complex physical structures of condensed (“frozen”) energy and what the key requirements for wealth creation are, namely a change agent, a selection mechanism and a life-extending mechanism. He uses elements from multiple disciplines, from physics to biology to economics to illustrate this.
