I am an extreme contrarian investor, aquarium hobbyist and health-food guzzler. Let it be known that I intend to examine opinions, and see if they can be backed up with evidence. Also, I try to be as easy going as possible, but apologize in advance for any unholy rambling rants that occur while I write an article under the influence of coffee. I realize that there is a lack of understanding regarding the basic tenants of economics. As such I hope to be able to explain concepts in an easily accessible manner that will allow people to figure out if policies are beneficial in the short run, long run, or not at all. Feel free to check out my articles about layman economics on the Business Times http://www.btinvest.com.sg/blogs/filter/by_reporter?id=1621
