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:
- Piecing Together My Work
- Conference Papers
- Economic Models
- Game Theory
- Darkside Economics
- Cruelty-free economics, veganism, and animal cruelty topics
Altogether, I have over 400 posts. Take a look through, maybe something will catch your interest.
Piecing Together My Work
This series of posts focuses on tying all my work together. My work mostly focuses on economics with a few other topics thrown in such as games, contests, and vegan topics. Many of my economics posts appear technical and from a glance may seem to apply to a small audience. Many of these posts provide important background and theory to my more applied economic posts.
Games and contests serve the purpose of stimulating the thought process of my audience. Most of my contests apply analysis and/or some economic theory. The vegan topics are part of a new area of economics, which I am attempting to develop. These posts attempt to evaluate the real costs of animal cruelty. Understanding cruelty to animals can also help understand cruelty that people inflict upon each other,
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.
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 models, 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 have also designed a ‘Social Economic Utility Analysis’ Model. This model can be used to compare the relative utility someone can obtain from various choices regarding usage of time. A person could spend more time working to accumulate more money in an attempt to improve quality of time away from work. A person may choose to work less and try to obtain more value from activities that do not involve much money. The results shown by the model depends on how much someone enjoys their work, what activities they enjoy in their free time, existing wealth and several other characteristics.
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.
Cruelty-free economics, veganism, and animal cruelty topics
I like to refer to myself as having a plant-based diet and a cruelty free-lifestyle (to the best of my ability). I previously referred to myself as vegan. I feel the new description better covers my life philosophy. I have written several posts and made several videos about certain topics relating to my journey to adopting my current lifestyle. I have also made several posts regarding animal cruelty as well as discussed the link between economics and animal abuse.
I am currently working on a book (working title ‘Cruelty-free Economics’, previous working title was ‘Vegan Economics’). Most of the content in my posts will feature in this book. Progress has been very slow so far, as I have been focusing on lots of different areas. I expect to complete the book in the second quarter of 2020. I do not intend to rush the book, as the approach I am adopting is very different from conventional economics. The logic supporting my methodology needs to be sound to stand up to a likely heavy critique.
To be continued in Part 2 - Collection of Works (Part 2)

Economics Udemy Course
I have launched my first Udemy course ‘Economics is for Everyone’. The course focuses on how economics affects everyday people, the decisions they make and how they interact with the world around them. The course contains 24 video lectures (about 4 hours of viewing), 64 multiple-choice questions (3 at the end of most lectures), 32 downloadable resources (presentation slides, additional notes and links to relevant Steem posts), and 2 scenario questions. The course is currently free-of-charge. Click the link above to access the course.
