“Nathanial Gronewold presents out-of-the-box theories of economic relativity that would intrigue Albert Einstein. Anyone who loves to think will enjoy Anthill Economics and its creative and thought-provoking analysis of how real-life financial issues are impacted by physics and the laws of nature. If you’ve been disappointed by economists – and most of us have – you will appreciate the alternative clues presented in this entertaining book about our economic futures.”

“In Anthill Economics, Gronewold provides a great service by explaining crucial linkages between science and economics that have been neglected for far too long in economic and policy circles. As he eloquently explains, important social and economic concepts such as growth and income inequality are indeed linked to how we interact with the physical world, including the extraction of energy and natural resources. We must embrace these findings from researchers crossing academic and philosophical divides so we can make more accurately-informed policy decisions.”
