The Unofficial Economist name reflects the fact that I want to start working on and practicing economics, thinking deeply about it, but I’m only an aspirant to graduate-level training so far.
Being ~unofficial~ allows me room to experiment, take guesses, and dig into economic ideas that interest me without too much pressure to get it completely right yet.
The blog is really a conglomeration of everything that’s interested me (and that I’ve found time to write about) in the past half year. I try my hand at interpreting economic papers and development blog posts; I send news / proof of life to my parents via the life updates section; I recommend books and podcasts; and I share other bits of my life, like the Bollywood dances I’ve been practicing.
The menu to the left breaks the posts into four categories: economics, life updates, recommendations, and other. I hope you enjoy!
