Josh Brown

Josh Brown is a final year Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Economics student at the University of Tasmania majoring in Economic Analysis and International Relations. Although this is what he formally studies, he also has a passion for history, rhetoric, and interestingly, big data – and so believes firmly in a cross-disciplinary approach to understanding the world. What draws him to economics specifically is its focus on incentives and human behaviour, and therefore its ability to provide practical solutions to problems encountered on an everyday basis.
