Profile image stolen by me from Dr. Emily Weber, https://www.deviantart.com/drzime/art/Giskard-121777679

The purpose of studying economics is not to acquire a set of ready-made answers to economic questions, but to learn how to avoid being deceived by economists.” - Joan Robinson

My Economics SE account is mostly inactive.

Former game theorist. I decided I wanted to do something more tangible and went into software engineering. I found some of economics intellectually interesting, but the topics that interested were either overhyped and full of false promises or had no use but as a solution to a math puzzle. (Sometimes both.)

I probably should have made the switch to programming 10-15 years ago. So long, and thanks for all the fish!
