God. America. Economics.
We feel that these three things are some of the most important aspects of our lives. God has made America awesome, and while many factors may impact the greatness of this country for better or for worse, we believe economics to be an extraordinarily powerful force that has an ultimately positive effect.
We are living in a very interesting period in history. Certain social and political transformations currently underway pose a threat to destroying the foundations on which this nation was founded. While this may immediately draw to mind such concerns as religious extremists, terrorist threats, and global war, we must also be wary of those within our own borders who maintain the desire to uproot all that we have fought to establish.
Yes, that means there may be a slight political bias in the content you see here. We’re certainly aware of it. In our own attempts to overcome it, we strive to acquire information on current events from various perspectives before commenting on it. Importantly, we will never give favor to any one viewpoint solely based on political party. Rather, we will try to be as rational as possible. We hope that anyone commenting takes the same stance.
Principles of macro and microeconomics describe this science as the study of the flow of resources and an analysis of how people respond to incentives. Applying such logic to understanding the political forces active in the world today enables all people to recognize the intricacies of global events and how they can impact each and every one of us. We take an approach based on our education and interest in the field of economics. It quickly becomes clear that this academic focus extends beyond the titans of Wall Street.
As much as we love economics, we will also be posting other material, from strictly political pieces with very little economic focus to the occasional rant. Furthermore, as we are Christians, any personal epiphanies are susceptible to being posted.
