Jason Smith — One year ago ...

One year ago ... I put up my preprint. No journal has accepted it yet ...

A general information equilibrium model in the case of ideal information transfer is defined and then used to derive the relationship between supply (in- formation destination) and demand (information source) with the price as the detector of information exchange between demand and supply. We recover the properties of the traditional economic supply-demand diagram. Infor- mation equilibrium is then applied to macroeconomic problems, recovering some common macroeconomic models in particular limits like the AD-AS model, IS-LM model (in a low inflation limit), the quantity theory of money (in a high inflation limit) and the Solow-Swan growth model. Information equilibrium results in empirically accurate models of inflation and interest rates, and can be used to motivate a “statistical economics”, analogous to statistical mechanics for thermodynamics.
Hard breaking in.
