I love economics.
My interests at the moment are International Economics (International Relations, Security, IPE), The Economics of Defense (National Security, War, National Defense, Peace, Conflict Management) Asset Pricing, Non-Bank Financial Institutions (mostly related to, Derivatives, and, securities in general) and Risk and Risk Management as it relates to the previous areas.
My job has an annual solicitation for a fully funded econ PHD. I’m exploring what that would look like, and the viability of running my own scaled up real estate investment venture while being a full time PHD candidate.
The number one goal is running my own book and it looks like getting a work funded PHD can even be an enhancement to that.
Once I get the institution guidelines (any?, just public?, just private?, etc) then I’ll begin the massive networking campaign to find professors ready to take me on under their tutelage.
I’ve been reading a derivatives textbook alongside a technical analysis book I received recently.
Use every day to learn and progress. We aren’t meant to lead convenient and non-challenging lives.
See you tomorrow.
