Hi Everyone.


This post is the first post in a series of posts that contain the links to all the posts I have created on Steem so far. I thought it would be a good idea to have a place where all my posts can be easily accessed. I have divided my posts into several categories. The categories included in Part 1 are as follows:

  • Cost Benefit Analysis
  • Economics Facts
  • Conference Papers
  • Spreadsheets
  • Economic Theory
  • Game Theory
  • Darkside Economics

Altogether, I have almost 300 posts. Take a look through, maybe something will catch your interest.

Cost Benefit Analysis


I have many posts dedicated to cost benefit analysis (CBA). When I worked in Government, conducting and reviewing CBA was a critical part of my job. I thought I would take the opportunity to share my knowledge. My posts look at both theory and application.

Economics Facts (Top 10s)


This series never really got going but I am still considering revisiting it at some point. When I first joined YouTube I made some videos where I analysed income and inequality in several different countries (mostly focused on OECD countries). On Steemit, I created posts containing these videos.

Top 16 highest earning countries

Top 10 countries OECD with the fastest growing income inequality

In which OECD country can you earn the highest income per hour?

Conferences and Papers


I have attended close to a dozen conferences. Mostly of these conferences were held in Australia. I attended one in Frankfurt, Germany. I enjoy presenting at conferences but it has been awhile since I have attended one. I think the last one I attended was in Melbourne in 2016. My papers focus on transport economics and CBA.

How the results of a cost benefit analysis (CBA) are influenced by assumptions

Does induced demand erode project benefits

Higher operating speeds from improved infrastructure might be causing more fatal accidents

Spreadsheets and Models

I have always enjoyed playing around with spreadsheets. I have developed over a dozen spreadsheets/models used for economic analysis. Unfortunately, I am unable to present these as I do not legally have the rights to them. I have used screenshots from some of these models in some of my posts before. I have developed an excel-based game that I call ‘life choices’ and I have made some videos and posts about this game. I intend to make a few more games just for fun at some point.

Economics Theory


I have written quite a few posts relating to economic theory. Most of these posts focus on explaining the economic theory as well as how the theory is applied to the real world. Economics is often taught in a way that is detached to the real world and I have attempted to close the gap with several of these posts. Economic theories also tend to be interlinked. On most occasions when I discuss a theory, knowledge of another theory is required.

Game Theory


Game theory is one of my favourite topics in economics and has always kept me fascinated. I think there is so much to explore in regards to game theory. There are also some really interesting real life applications of game theory as well. Some of the work I have developed and currently developing ,relating to game theory, is also quite novel and cannot be found elsewhere. One such example is my work relating to what I call ‘triple threat’. I have also applied game theory to the usage of Steemit bots.

Darkside of Economics


My dark side of economics series contains my most controversial posts relating to how economics is used to manipulate people. This series ventures into how the Government distort the system to serve their own benefit as well as those that put them into power (not the people as they would like you to believe). This series also contains my posts regarding Democracy (lack of as well as failure of). I willing be pumping a lot more energy into this series as the year progresses.
