Brian Albrecht's blog
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. For a glimpse, check out my post "5 Life Lessons Economics Taught Me."
I sincerely believe in the power of economics and have decided to devote my life to the study and spreading of economic ideas. I did not learn about economics through lectures. I discovered it through blogs and books.
This experience improved my life forever. Economic thinking continues to help my life everyday and it can do the same for you.
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
