Will this blog go anywhere? I don’t know.

I haven’t entirely figured out what I’m going to do with this blog, if anything. If I do, it’ll likely be my musings on economics, particularly on how economics is taught, as well as occasional thoughts on health policy/education reform/the federal budget/last night’s episode of Game of Thrones.

The impulse to actually create this thing came from my interest in distilling economics down to its first principles, comparable to the properties of real numbers in math or Newton’s laws in physics. Obviously that’s a puzzle way above my pay grade, but 1. I’m arrogant enough to think about it anyway and 2. I thought some of my reactions to learning economics might be interesting. As such, if I ever come back to this the first posts will probably be along those lines.
