About Me

I’m a graduate student in economics. My field of specialization is development economics; specifically, capital mobility, foreign direct investment and international trade. This blog is intended to highlight new research in the field of macroeconomics and development. However, what this blog is not intended to do is to provide in depth and wonkish analysis, for that, go to one of the heavy-weights. I want to do this in the little time I could squeeze out between my courses and course exams. So, feel free to hold me to my extremely low standards.

An excellent rule of thumb for economists:

“I will give you a talisman … Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen and ask yourself if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi 

One response to “About Me

  1. looks good so far. just having a scan. i have read a bit of the CHAOS theory and i agree 100% that that is what we are heading for. The question i guess is, is that what THEY want.. riots will lead to further security presence, screening, bigger jails.. Police State. I am canadian but i enjoy american politics. i am beginning to think it’s somewhat sadistic of me but on the other hand i want to understand wtf is going on in that country. it all seems like a big ponzi scheme leading to, heaven forbid i say this, the Alex Jones conspiracy.
    I think it may just be that the US is fixated on war.. why not start a class war? I look forward to reading more. cheers
