I am fascinated by markets all of kinds: supermarkets, capital markets, labor markets, emerging online markets and open-air markets in other countries. Perhaps surprisingly, I generally dislike farmers' markets.
I love to travel and have visited every continent other than Antartica. Recently returned from a trip across Asia and would highly recommend Shanghai, Tokyo and Bangkok if you've never been. (Istanbul, Prague and Barcelona are some of my other favorite cities). I'm looking forward to checking out Croatia this May but really I want to figure out a way to visit Myanmar in the near future.
If you've ever read MarginalRevolution.com you'll understand my basic outlook on the world.
