|Warning: I might try to explain economics using cats or witchcraft--it has happened before.|
Of course for me, things like cats and witchcraft and voudoun (voodoo for the rest of you) are simple. Therefore, I am quite sure that I will sound like a lunatic on a soapbox on most days--we will call that "normal."
Now, a little about myself. I graduated last year from the University of Colorado at Denver with two bachelor degrees (one in history, and one in literary studies). While at UCD, I worked at the student newspaper of the Community College of Denver (the previous year before starting at UCD, I went to CCD and that is where I met the first editor that I worked under at the newspaper). It was during my time at Campus Connection (CCD's student newspaper) that I started to write some articles on economics and the economy.
One of the things that I discovered in college is that I am fascinated about the train wreck that is the modern economy and the economic theories that people have about it. I had started to read economic news and books before college; and now that I am out of college, I am still reading them. And yes, I did take some economic classes in college, both to fulfill requirements and as electives. In fact, for awhile I consider switching to economics.
Besides a perhaps unhealthy interest in economics, I spent ten years running a restaurant before starting my own business as a writer and publisher of ebooks. I also backseat drive my wife's pottery business, as well as illustrate series of a children books. These occupations occasionally show up in my opinions about the economy and economic theories.
And finally, I like to think of myself as a funny man. Or as one of my biggest critics says, a McComedic Troll. Therefore, yes, I do plan on inflicting my sense of humor on you. That and lots of cat pictures...because one cannot have too many cat pictures when trying to figure out economic theory.
