I am currently a second year student studying a Bachelor of Commerce at The University of Melbourne. I find economics interesting because I think that it provides a pretty fresh and insightful way to frame everyday issues. It is, at the same time, both a lens through which to view the world and a tool that can be used to solve problems. I have always enjoyed writing and am looking forward to sharing my ‘two cents’ on a wide variety of economic issues. In my spare time I enjoy watching SBS’s Letters & Numbers.
