I am an applied microeconomist with particular interest in development economics,human capital, family economics and related public policy topics.
"Economists study all human behavior, from a person's decision to lease a new sports car, to the speed the new driver chooses as she rounds a hairpin corner, to her decision not to wear a seat belt. These are all choices, and they are all fair game for economists. And they are not all directly related to money. Choice - not money - is the unifying feature of all the things economists study."
from Acemoglu, Laibson and List's Microeconomics textbook (2014).
