Energy-Entropic Methods in Assessment and Control of Economic Systems



New knowledge often arises at the intersection of different scientific schools when well-known laws of one science adapted to and interpreted by the other science enable to look at the studied phenomenon at the other angle. An example is application of the thermodynamical approach to the mathematical description and business system management focused on the decrease in their entropy and increase in productive efficiency. A theoretical approach proposed by the author becomes even more valuable as the national theory and practice do not contain any developments in the assessment of business system efficiency based on the energy-entropic method. The universality of the proposed method is based on the fact that all systems of the material world—wildlife and inanimate nature, technology and production are arenas of ever-present changes in the amounts of energy and entropy, studying of which can give new knowledge of laws governing functioning and development of such systems. This research shows scientifically-based application of the energy-entropic method to the assessment of economic efficiency of any production.
