Hello world, my name is Brian Albrecht. I’m a budding economist, a 2012 St. Olaf College grad with a major in physics and political science, and currently attend the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics. I am interested in how political institutions, public policies, and information affect firms and the decisions they make. This fall, I will be attending the University of Minnesota for a PhD in economics.

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.

God Bless!
