Welcome to my fourth instalment of my collection of Hive works. I have previously authored three posts containing my work from June 2017 up until present. This fourth instalment has been considered necessary, as the previous three instalments have grown large. Most of the content in this fourth instalment relates to Hive and my experience on Hive. As part of the update, the previous three posts have also been updated and will be continued to be updated with new posts on a regular basis. The updated Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the collection of works can be accessed using the following links.
As with the previous collections of work, I have divided my subject matter into categories. The categories included in Part 3 are as follows:
- Getting to know me
- Steem/Hive Economics
- Steem/Hive Milestones
- Spectrum Economics on holiday
- Captain Hive
Getting to know me
Most of my posts relate to economics. However, sometimes I like to take a break from economics and discuss some of my other interests. I think it is important for my readers and viewers to see other sides of me. This is the section where I will introduce you to my dogs, tell you about my theories about time travel and talk about Christmas.

Teaching and Learning Philosophy
The idea of social media on the blockchain is very interesting. Steem is the first blockchain to be dedicated to social media. Hundreds of applications have been built on Steem/Hive. They vary from video sharing and streaming to blogs to photographs and even fitness.
I have been fortunate to be one of the first economists to be able to explore the operation of Steem/Hive. I have explained the economics of how Steem/Hive functions. I have investigated what is successful as well as some of the problems and challenges. So far, I have analysed the impact of bots, the distribution of rewards, the Steemit/Hive Dapp user interfaces, promotion of content, and investment options. My posts are available in the links below.

The Great Bull Run of 2021 and My Concerns for Hive
I have been on Hive for over two years. During the course of this journey, I have reached several milestones. These milestones could relate to number of followers, reputation score, anniversaries, or even a major power up. I have also included posts relating to some of my activities on Hive as well as updates.

Spectrum Economics on holiday
I like to travel now again. I have been to many different and exciting places. Hive is the ideal place for me to share some of my experiences with my audience. So far, I have posted videos of my trip to Uluru and Kata Tjuta as well as a short video about the Carnival Legend on my visit to Alaska. I will have several more videos about my adventures up in Alaska, which I will share with my audience.
Travelling is one the best ways of opening our minds to the world. I try to bring as much of an open mind as I can to most of work. The world can be a very strange place. Believing can be difficult unless we experience it firsthand ourselves.

I created a separate account on Hive to emphasize the pictures and images that I have created for my @spectrumecons account. The pictures and images serve the purpose of helping explain the written content. The images are created from a combination of PNGs created from photographs of collectibles, photographs from holidays, and screenshots from my creations from PS4 games. The PNGs are put together using Microsoft PowerPoint to create pictures that help tell the story of the content. Text is often added to the pictures for dialog. I occasional create GIFs using combinations of pictures.

This brings me to the end of my fourth instalment of my collection of works. This post as well as the previous three instalments will be updated every couple of months. Once, my content has expanded beyond a reasonable capacity for four posts, I will create my fifth instalment.

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 Steem posts), and 2 scenario questions. The course is currently free-of-charge. Click the link above to access the course.
