- Economic Theory
- Cost Benefit Analysis
- Market Structure
- Covid-19 Series
- Economics Facts

I have written quite a few posts relating to economic theory. Most of these posts focus on explaining the economic theory as well as how the theory is applied to the real world. Economics is often taught in a way that is detached to the real world and I have attempted to close the gap with several of these posts. Economic theories also tend to be interlinked. On most occasions when I discuss a theory, knowledge of another theory is required.

Cost Benefit Analysis
I have many posts dedicated to cost benefit analysis (CBA). When I worked in Government, conducting and reviewing CBA was a critical part of my job. I thought I would take the opportunity to share my knowledge. My posts look at both theory and application.

In my market structure series, I described and explained 6 different market structures. I explained these over 14 posts, 7 written posts and 7 videos. The videos supported the content in the written posts as well as provided my audience with an alternative medium to experience my content. The written and video series also included introduction posts that provided a broad overview of the content.
The series explained the theory as well as the application of these market structures to the real world. The oligopsony market structure was explained in the context of Steem. As Steem, with its stake-based voting system, resembles a market structure with many sellers but very few buyers (i.e. users receive most of their post payout from just a few users/buyers).
The real world application of market structures is an important area that readers, both economists and non-economists, should understand. As the type of market structure adopted determines who has the greater influence over price and quantity as well as who takes away the most surplus. Oligopoly and monopoly benefit the sellers whereas perfect competition and monopsony benefit the buyers. The entire series can be accessed using the links below.

An economics account on Hive would not be complete without a section or series on macroeconomics. I consider myself more of a microeconomist but I also realise it is important to understand macroeconomic concepts and application. Macroeconomics is also where the most amount of manipulation takes place. I will, over time, be expanding on this series.

I put together a series of posts that investigated the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The series focused on the social, economic and financial impact of the virus and measures used to combat it for the short, medium, and long run. The original 8 Part series was written in April 2020. Therefore, the analysis was conducted during the pandemic. At that point, there were unknown factors relating to the true nature of the virus as well as the full extent of the damage caused by the virus. Covid-19 will be revisited when more information is available or it has run its course.

Economics Facts (Top 10s)
This series never really got going but I am still considering revisiting it at some point. When I first joined YouTube I made some videos where I analysed income and inequality in several different countries (mostly focused on OECD countries). On Hive, I created posts containing these videos.
Top 16 highest earning countries
Top 10 countries OECD with the fastest growing income inequality

Economics is everywhere
Economics is everywhere is a series that takes a look at how economics is literally all around us in our daily lives. This series contains both videos and written posts. This series mostly targets people who are less familiar with economics but are interested to know more about how economics affects them.

Economics Udemy Course
I have launched my first Udemy course ‘Economics is for Everyone’. The course focuses on how economics affects everyday people, the decisions they make and how they interact with the world around them. The course contains 24 video lectures (about 4 hours of viewing), 64 multiple-choice questions (3 at the end of most lectures), 32 downloadable resources (presentation slides, additional notes and links to relevant Hive posts), and 2 scenario questions. The course is currently free-of-charge. Click the link above to access the course.
