Greetings, friend! Ever wondered how an economist sees minimum wage laws? Or innovations in school choice? Or the rise of Uber and AirBnB? This page was developed as a response to a few kind queries that I formalize an economic perspective on some of society’s hottest topics. Though a lowly economics grad student, my only goal is that these bite-sized explanations will be as well-researched, fair, and amusing as I can manage. Please feel free to reach me below with your questions– I can’t wait to hear from you!

Between a good and a bad economist this constitutes the whole difference — the one takes account of the visible effect; the other takes account both of the effects which are seen, and also of those which it is necessary to foresee (That Which is Seen, and That Which is Not Seen, Bastiat).
