I seem to recall reading a post a long time ago (that I cannot find) that gravity in the Newtonian limit (eg the Solar system) can be completely explained in terms of gravitational time dilation alone.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In his book, Gravity from the Ground up, Schutz argue that All of Newtonian gravitation is simply the curvature of time. Can anyone shed light on this since I don't understand his argument at all?
