I am an Actuarial Science major in a Commerce degree at the University of Melbourne. Although I might have a more quantitative background, I enjoy the broader and more intricate aspects of how economics seeks to explain social and market phenomenon. I especially enjoy seeing and reading about economic concepts which apply and can easily be observed in mundane and regular situations. These are welcome departures from the often highly detached and intangible subject of mathematics. I hope that the publication will be a centre for broadening economic understanding, stimulating thought and challenging opinion.
