About

Hello, and welcome to 21stcenturyeconomics.
My name is James Foord and I am a student of Economics in Barcelona at the Pompeu Fabra university.
As you may have guessed, this blog is devoted to the science of economics.
The subject of economics is one of vital importance, it is used to determine and justify most if not all of the policies used by government. Understanding how the economy works means understanding how humans behave, and in short, how the world works.
That’s why it is our civic duty to understand such matters. Only through this mechanism, through a general understanding of the economy can we lay the foundations for change and a prosperous future.
For this reason I believe it is MY duty to provide a site where this information can be easily accessed. Many other people and places on the net can also provide this service, but they are in relative short supply, compared to the places and sites that will give you the WRONG information.
I will explain this more in detail in later posts.
For now, suffice to say that if you keep on reading, and if you keep an open mind, you will find yourself in a path towards enlightenment and you may end up challenging everything you thought so far. Either that, or you will think I’m a nutter.
So just sit back and relax, our journey begins here.
