About

Welcome to my blog!

I’m Daniel De Voss. Currently I’m making my way through a PhD in Economics at the University of Queensland (UQ). Before this, I was an economist at the Reserve Bank of Australia. And before that, I studied Economics and Science at UQ. My next move should determine whether I’m oscillating or mean-reverting. I’m a long-time member of one of Australia’s political parties–the tone of the blog should make it evident which–but like the University, the Bank, and myself, it’s inescapably imperfect. Though it should be implicit, the frenzy distilled here is my own and is not endorsed by any of these institutions.

This blog is intended to discuss the theory and practice of economics, with a particular emphasis on flows of funds. The nature of money, whence it came and where it goes, fascinates me. I’m unwilling to commit to a particular school of monetary thought, preferring to start with reality and find out later where that places me on the metallist-chartalist spectrum. But money is not an end in itself; I’m also interested in how it impacts on labour and asset markets, so there might be some pieces on that as well. If I find blogging a useful and addictive medium, I’m likely to veer into music, film, comedy, literature, popular culture, politics, and other non-economic issues that, if you’re a typical economist, you should have no interest in whatsoever.

Make yourself at home! I hope that we all learn something.
