For a project in my MBA project, I designed an "analog computer" which consisted of variable resistors, capacitors and inductors, some voltmeters and ammeters. This was designed to create the same second order differential equations as were used to model changes in the money supply as measurable by the readings on the meters. The premise was that if you could properly build the model (the analog computer) to reflect the economy, you could, by diddling the dials, project the outcomes of various types of changes (in money supply, interest rates, inflation, etc.).

And what would your analog computer have done if you had taken the resistor representing the money supply out and replaced it with a power supply?
