The idea for the term “The Backyard Economist” or “Backyard Economics” is a direct play from the brilliantly written book “Armchair Economics.” It is a form of thought or analysis based on all of the basic economic principles from the vast spectrum of interests the field contains, and transcribes that analysis into a word only discussion. Economics is famous for its lack of words; its speaks in graphs and equations, models so to speak. But in every public policy, in every current event, in every trending social topic, economics is at the heart.
Backyard economics is symbolic of the American tradition of the barbecue. It is gathered civilians living in a representative Republic, trying to
understand the world better, and being taught from one who sees things from a whole different perspective or paradigm.
Backyard Economics can give you a unique or unconventional wisdom. Wisdom comes from knowledge and the knowledge comes from university training and
constant research and real time experience.
