Joey Moloney is an economics honours student at the University of Melbourne. He has previously completed a Bachelor of Arts with majors in politics and media.
Joey joined the ESSA team as a writer as an avenue to share thoughts, ideas and opinions, and to engage in constructive debate with peers. His articles typically centre around the intersection of economics and politics, or economic thought and history. Having a keen interest in exploring heterodox schools of economic thought, Joey believes a more pluralist economics curriculum would prove beneficial to all.
Outside of these arenas, Joey enjoys the music of Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins.
