Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I will take your word for that, Jake, and stand corrected.

But I guess what I am getting at is that the equation that applies in the economic era we are now entering is e=mc squared, where e = "economic value" and c relates to connectivity...

Then you'll probably want to look into the mathematics on neural and scale-free networks.

Migeru has some interesting ideas about analogies between thermodynamics and economics and fluid dynamics and economics.

But all of these areas are a bit far afield from my own area of expertise.

The dynamics of nonlinear differential equations might also be worth a shot (i.e. classical chaos theory - but if you google nonlinear differential equations, you'll get less pseudophilosophical crap than if you google chaos theory).
