Introducing The Simple Economics Series

imageThe Simple Economics Series is a collection of information that explains, in plain English, the fundamentals of economics. I remember thinking in high school exactly how much I hated economics and wondered why I was forced to sit though the most boring class of all time. Fast forward 15 years later and I’m finishing up my PhD in Financial Planning and Consumer Economics. Who knew? Economics doesn’t have to be boring and it actually quite useful in our everyday lives.

Economics, at its core, it about making choices with the time and money we have. It is extremely practical at we can leverage the principles to live a happier, healthier, and more efficient life. I’ll put my own spin on the subject matter I call Personal Economics. Basically, anything that I find useful or interesting in personal economics, I’ll work to make it understandable to anyone- even without an advanced degree in boringness. If there is a specific concept that you would like to know more about just send me an email or leave a message in the comments.
