I guess a formal introduction is in order…

Well, hello there. My name is Ryan Freeland, I am nineteen years old, and I love photography, cars, guitars, liberty, and most importantly, economics.

Many of you reading this probably already know that I am a second-year finance and economics major here at James Madison University, but for those who don’t, it’s nice to meet you.

I’m not exactly sure what this blog will become. I guess it’s just a place for me to organize my thoughts, discuss what I have Penlearned (in class and on my own), and ultimately to promote a common sense understanding of the laws of economics and our current market structure. After every econ class period or after finishing a chapter in the variety of economics books I am working through, I find myself comparing the new information to current events. Far too often there is a logical disconnect between the two. This is why I write.

I am by no means an expert—just a student excited about the implications of my newfound knowledge. But I refuse to be silent or too shy to share my thoughts even though I am still early on in the life-long process of true education. So with that, I welcome you to read what I write, respond, inquire, agree or disagree, walk away in disgust, praise me for being the greatest thing to ever happen to you, etc. I just hope this is interesting to some people, and if it isn’t, at least it is fun and helpful for me.
