Econ Point of View

Understanding the world through an economic point of view

Economics applies to all aspects of life. It is not simply a school subject, but a way of understanding the world. Through proper economic thinking, people can directly improve their lives and make the world a better place. It simply requires a proper understanding of a few basic ideas.

I sincerely believe in the power of economics and have decided to devote my life to the study and spreading of economic ideas. I originally did not learn about economics through lectures. I discovered it through blogs and books. I hope others can still learn from blogs.

This blog explores economic ideas and how they can improve people’s lives. It is a blend of economic theory and practical applications.

I urge you to snoop around and show me where I’m wrong. Maybe I will even show you where you’re wrong. Together we can work to better understand our wonderful world

With Josh Hendrickson, I also write a weekly newsletter called Economic Forces. Subscribe here.
