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”.

    It’s a powerful biological response that has preserved our species for millennia. But now it may be keeping us from pursuing strategies that would improve the environment, the economy, even our own health. So is it time to dial down our disgust reflex? You can help fix things — as Stephen Dubner does in this episode — by chowing down on some delicious insects. The post The Downside of Disgust (Ep. 448) appeared first on Freakonomics.

    They can’t vote or hire lobbyists. The policies we create to help them aren’t always so helpful. Consider the car seat: parents hate it, the safety data are unconvincing, and new evidence suggests an unintended consequence that is as anti-child as it gets.
