Countdown to release ...

A Random Physicist Takes on Economics is now formatted, and being published by Amazon KDP. It'll be live in the next 72 hours according to the estimate ...

In the meantime, here's the original first draft of the book's description blurb (since I can't seem to access the final version that'll be on the Amazon page):
A Random Physicist Takes on Economics is a critique of economic methodology from an outsider's perspective. Author Jason Smith leverages random agents and information theory to argue against ubiquitous economic constructs such as so-called "rational" expectations, prediction markets, and utility maximizing agents using examples consisting of nothing more complicated than Dungeons and Dragons dice sets and pints of blueberries. In the end, he calls for economists to present more uncertainty and plead greater ignorance when it comes to questions of politics and policy.
