The model looks at molecular interactions in an atmosphere flowing over a surface, just as the airflow over a wing instead of modeling molecules as individual agents whose level of activity is governed by heat, as in Yakovenko et. al. and other econophysics models.
Introduces an actual ‘economic’ structure into gas models which integrates the behavior of agents and thus avoids the artifical constraints of ‘efficient market’ and ‘rational agent’ underpinning much of economic modeling.
Just as in an economy, circulation is required to generate growth/lift which changes with flow conditions. Flow generates forces on the surface that have direct economic relevance. Most importantly, it shows income distribution and places the economy within a defined performance envelope.
For any given balance of forces, there is only one specific stable velocity, and when disturbed, the model will tend to return to this velocity, as long as the model is within its performance envelope. There is no general economic equilibrium per se, but rather a trimmed velocity to which the model, when disturbed, may return after a number of cycles, dependent on its stability.
