My name is Nathan Tankus. I’m a writer and Research Scholar with the Modern Money Network. I’ve started to blog here because I have an overflowing multitude of interdisciplinary interests in economics and social sciences generally that are starting to overwhelm me. I read about a bewilderingly large maze of different topics all connected by a (sometimes loose) relationship to economics. I do this because many different things topics and issues catch my interest at any given time. By blogging here I hope to catalogue things I’ve read since I’m sure I’ve lost track of many interesting papers and ideas from the time I read without cataloguing.
In short this blog will mostly be public notes to myself. I’m making these public because an audience helps to improve my writing, get other people thinking and arguing about things I think are interesting and to provoke others to rethink what they think they know. I will also likely post more formal blog posts meant to garner attention on the results of my research or other projects in relation to MMN.
Especially considering that this is something closer to organized notes to myself rather than traditional public writing, nothing written here can be construed as representing the opinions of the Modern Money Network or any other organization I currently have, or in the past had, a relationship.
Because this is meant to document what I’m reading on any given day, I expect to produce multiple entries per week. This may not be the case during certain particularly busy times, or times I’ve finally managed to put everything else away and work towards finishing the main research projects that are still on my to do list. However, I expect those times to be few and far between. If you follow me on twitter at @nathantankus I will be promoting any new posts on that platform. You can also follow the RSS Feed here
I will write to you soon!
