Robert Greco

Robert Greco is a third year Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Laws student at Monash University. Robert is passionate about economics because it cuts through the emotion and conventional wisdoms that pervade human behaviour and in turn offers true conclusions. Therefore, the power of economics lies in its ability to inform our decisions - both important and trivial.

An ardent Carlton fan, Robert is therefore a walking hypocrite, as his life is full of anything but rational behaviour. Beyond economics and football, Robert enjoys travelling (especially to warm destinations), playing golf and football and following finance and politics to pique his intellectual interest.
