Taloudesta

Tekniikan lisäksi olen kiinnostunut myös taloudesta monesta näkökulmasta – kansantaloudesta, rahoitusmarkkinoista, rahamarkkinoista, finanssipolitiikasta jne.

Tämän innoittamana hakeuduin opiskelemaan Tampereen yliopiston kansantaloustiedettä ja valmistuinkin kauppatieteiden maisteriksi lopulta vuonna 2008. Opiskeluni sisälsivät kansantaloutta, tilastotiedettä, sisäistä ja ulkoista laskentatointa, markkinointia ja rahoitusta. Myöhemmin olen täydentänyt kaupallisia opintojani vielä oikeustieteen opinnoilla. Pro Gradu – työni aiheena oli “Osaketuottojen volatiliteetin mallintaminen”.

    A while back, we tried out a new idea on a special edition of Freakonomics Radio — a game show we called Tell Me Something I Don’t Know. You might remember it. It was so much fun that we decided to launch a whole new podcast series. It’s been in the works for a while and it’s finally here! A preview . . .

  • Calling All (Potential) Peak Performers!
    by Stephen J. Dubner on 28.4.2016 at 22:28

    In our recent Freakonomics Radio episode “How to Become Great at Just About Anything,” we spoke with K. Anders Ericsson, a research psychologist who has spent more than 30 years studying expert performers in many fields — music, sports, chess, surgery, teaching, writing, and more. Ericsson’s recent book is called Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Expertise. It has inspired us to try launching a Freakonomics spinoff podcast, called (for now) Peak.
