No surprise: The Hedged Economist is an economist. I’ve been at it for more years than I like to admit. If one leaves graduate school with a degree in economics, there are really only three options short of abandoning the degree and starting over. The options are: “doing” economics, telling people about economics, and applying it to your own affairs. I’ve done all three.
Currently, my focus is on applying economics to my own affairs especially financial management. That isn’t new, but my blog (hedgedeconomist.com) represents a departure. Traditionally I have avoided giving other than the broadest advice regarding personal finance, especially investing. It doesn’t take behavioral economics research or financial neurology to know people believe that they are responsible for their own financial success but fail because of bad advice. I also kept my opinions on policy to myself. People prefer confirming information, another startling discovery of behavioral economics; imagine that; people prefer “yes” men. So, given little upside and all the downside, a perversely asymmetric set of returns (that’s economist speak for a bad bet), I’ve stuck to my own affairs. But, increasingly, I get asked for my opinion, thus the blog.
