I am a research assistant at the chair for international economic relations at University of Oldenburg, Germany. This year I completed my doctoral degree after participating in the PhD program “Globalization and Employment”. In this blog I write about stuff that crosses my mind, mostly from Economics and related fields. I try to keep the vocabulary simple so that hopefully everybody can understand it. That is why the blog is named econ101.de. The views expressed here are my own, and this website is not affiliated with the University of Oldenburg.
