Due to some e-mail discussion I was invited to submit a short opinion
piece to this site. It is basically a bunch of people using types of
models from physics but shifting the focus towards (rather abstract)
economic problems.

        See it at: http://www.unifr.ch/econophysics/

It also has:

  BOOK REVIEW
   More Heat Than Light :Economics As Social Physics
  : Physics As Nature's Economics (Historical
  Perspectives on Modern Economics) by Philip J.
  Mirowski Alexander Adamchuk

and

 "Is Econometrics Science ?", Joe McCauley
 Nobel prizes have been given for the pure mathematics
 of General Equilibrium Theory (GET), but is there any
 scientific content to that modelling? It's more interesting
 to go further and also ask if there's any scientific content

Regards.
