John Maynard Keynes was perhaps the greatest economist of this century. In 1936 he wrote: "The ideas of economists, both when they are right and when they are wrong are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed, the world is ruled by little else. Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. Mad men in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years back."

My fascination with economics is reflected in the truth of these words. What lies behind the graphs, abstract theories, and jargon, are the secrets of how the world works. The secrets are about us, you and me; our interactions, our decisions, and the way we collectively influence the world around us. In the global community these secrets, this understanding, has never been more important. Economics is a discipline in thinking. Join me in discovering a new facet of our world.
