My research interests are scattered wide and are varied. I’m keen to understand the macroeconomy, the stock market & stock pricing, money & banking, demographics, and the long-run trends in all of the above. I’ve recently discovered an interest in understanding the unintended consequences of public policy, and be able to predict with accuracy the outcomes of policy actions in the broad economy, the stock market, and particular industries.
I love teaching so I’m always on the trail of how to be a Master Teacher (the one who can interest anyone/everyone in her course contents and get active participation from 100% of the students in & out of class).
