Spending an evening with centuries-old balance sheets is my idea of a great night. Obsessed with banks, financial markets & monetary economics. Enjoy!

Being a good economist means "disagreeing openly when someone makes an assertion that seems wrong." (Romer 2016: 20)

Which I do. Excessively. Mostly on topics regarding economics or financial and monetary history - though admittedly I sometimes wander far away from my core competence. A Booklover, an adventurer, a yogi and a big sucker for the fluency heuristic and all things pretty. 

If you like my content, please consider buying me a coffee - here or IRL!
