Hungy Ye

I a third year commerce student who always wondered why the world worked the way it did as a child. Upon graduation from VCE (back in the days) I promptly enrolled into Economics here at the University of Melbourne in order to get answers to the big questions which economics tries to explain; questions such as how do countries become rich and what do people actually refer to when they talk about the 'global financial crisis'. As the research officer on the publications team my job is to find interesting developments around the world and exploring the motives and logic behind why they happen by applying simple principles of economics. Outside of studying I like computers, and is always trying to find new ways to make it run faster.
