Chris Weinberg

I'm a recent graduate of the Bachelor of Commerce (2012), majoring in Economics and a breadth track in Politics & International Studies. I'll be undertaking an Honours year in Economics this year with a focus on Experimental Economics. I've always been passionate about the study of economics and how it's influenced by political actors. Inside the discipline, my particular passions are in international economics, gamification to improve social outcomes and fiscal policy. I'm an avid follower of American politics and the influence that social media has on the way politicians engage with the media and their fellow citizens; you can follow me on Twitter @CRJWeinberg.
