The protagonist, Ogilvy ( a great grandson of the HG Wells astronomer character in War of the Worlds) is a young mathematical economist who proves the Copeman Equation. In doing so becomes, at age 21, the youngest person in history to win the Noble Prize for economics

Copeman's Equation

In the complete economic model :

for lim n -> 1
Y(t+n) = M (t) X(t,k) + E -> X(t+n) = ΛX(t)


Y is a complete vector of dependant economic variables
t is a discreet time period at which variables can be measured
n is a discreet time period, such that at t and t+n variables can be measured
M is a matrix of higher order non linear functions of x(t, t-1.....t-k)
k is a complete lag structure
X is a complete vector of economic variables
E is a vector of errors whose sum of squares is distributed normally.
Λ is Lambda, an eigen vector of M
-.> is “tends to” in the sense of a mathematical limit.
Complete is as described by Godels Theorem.
Economic variables are real world measures


The most important informtion that matters in a complete economic model of the future, is knowing where you are now and what are the stationary functions that determine Λ
X can be described as a vector of Markov Processes.
