There are plenty of economics blogs out there, but most of them fall into one of two categories: superficial or overly academic. ThoughtBurner finds the happy medium. We look at the interesting questions, the ones that everyday people care about, and attempt to answer them with the rigor of formal economic studies.
We provide unique economic commentary on a variety of daily optimization issues – our biweekly “Thoughts” – and also incur the cost of research and analysis for the little things in life – ThoughtBurner Daily Optimization Research Projects – so that you don’t have to. Read more about the concept behind ThoughtBurner’s Daily Optimization Concept.
We also believe strongly in the value of data sharing and result verification, so we always make our data available to anyone who wants it. Downloads are included with all of our posts, and you can always email us directly if you have any specific requests and we’ll help you out. Our hope is that this will maximize the positive externalities from all of our projects.
