Relativistic Economics is a technology on the Diplomacy and Trading technology tree with a research cost of 130 Science. It unlocks some Diplomatic Options and one Star System Improvement, requires research in Xenology, and allows further research in Relativistic Markets (or, for the Cravers, Xenominerology) and Improved Fleet Management.

"The effect of time dilation and space travel on traditional financial models is non-negligible. This new branch of economics provides a basis for defining investment and profit under non-Newtonian physics in non-Euclidean space-time, e.g. observed interest rates, human capital erosion, and NPV (Net Proto-Heisenberg Value)."

NoteEdit

For the Harmony, this technology has a research cost of 300 Science and allows further research in Xenominerology and Relativistic Markets.

"Previously, option trading was a straightforward if technical calculation based on Black-Scholes and similar pricing models. However, with the inclusion of relativistic and non-relativistic frames these calculations become terrifically complex; any star system that can build the sophisticated computing and trading systems needed to deal in these options gains substantial benefits."
