Hello world, my name is Brian Albrecht. I’m a 2012 St. Olaf College grad with a major in physics and political science and currently attend the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics. I am interested how information and political institutions affect firms’ decisions. This year I am applying for a PhD program in economics back in the United States for the fall of 2014.
My blog, EPV, and this site are my ways of discussing my journey through the world of economics, from both inside and outside of academia, and things I pick up along the way. Also, I hope to point people to books I enjoyed through reviews. Check out Goodreads for my ratings/reviews of books and what I’m reading.
