Is this really true, or is it merely that *time* keeps getting more
expensive?

Lately I've had this idea tickling at the back of my lobes that there's a
fundamental connection between economics, information theory, and physics;
that macroeconomic behavior can be viewed in light of where and how we're
shoving entropy around, and that there are fundamental physical constraints
on economics, particularly in an information economy.

Just a thought.  Not quite ready to make the argument, yet.
