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 Fascinating, Sexy, Intellectually Compelling, Unregulated Global Market.” (Ep. 484)
    by Stephen J. Dubner on 2.12.2021 at 04:00

    The art market is so opaque and illiquid that it barely functions like a market at all. A handful of big names get all the headlines (and most of the dollars). Beneath the surface is a tangled web of dealers, curators, auction houses, speculators — and, of course, artists. In the first episode of a three-part series, we meet the key players and learn how an obscure, long-dead American painter suddenly became a superstar. (Part 1 of “The Hidden Side of the Art Market.”) The post “A Fascinating, Sexy, Intellectually Compelling, Unregulated Global Market.” (Ep. 484) appeared first on Freakonomics.

    Everyone agrees that massive deforestation is an environmental disaster. But most of the standard solutions — scolding the Brazilians, invoking universal morality — ignore the one solution that might actually work. Originally released on Freakonomics Radio, Steve gives an update on what’s happened in the two years since this episode first ran.

Could fixing the first problem solve the second? And does the rest of society need more compassion too? The post How Do You Cure a Compassion Crisis? (Ep. 444 Replay) appeared first on Freakonomics.
