This is my blog about my adventures in long-distance backpacking, ultra-marathon running, sarcasm, and maybe some economics. This other site is my academic economics site.
Wanna make it worse? Have you ever read anything by Sudhir Vankatesh? Sociologist who studies poverty.. infiltrated a gang in Chicago, and learned about the subculture of the projects..fascinating.. Now THERE's an economics paper waiting to be written.. check this out from Freakonomics today..http://freakonomics.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/08/06/michael-meet-curtis-philanthropy-gets-personal/Also.. he wrote an awesome book about his sociological gang studies.."Gang Leader for a Day"..just a suggestion.. :) enjoy
