Hello world, my name is Brian Albrecht. I am a Ph.D. student in economics at the University of Minnesota. For the 2014-2015 academic year, I am also an Adam Smith Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.
My research interests focus on the role of information and political institutions on industrial organization. Before my Ph.D. program, I earned an M.Sc. in the Economics of Public Policy from the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics and a B.A. in Physics and Political Science from St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN.
My blog, Econ Point of View, and this site are my ways of discussing my journey through the world of economics, from both inside and outside of academia, and other things I pick up along the way. Also, I hope to point people to books I enjoyed through reviews. Check out Goodreads for my ratings/reviews of books and what I’m reading.
