  • My Story

    I am very passionate about Business in general, and about Economics in particular, as was my father. Early in life, he inculcated a desire within me to view the world through the lens of investment possibilities. God has blessed each of us with skills, talents, and abilities which can be used to acquire and accumulate capital. With the formulation of daily goals and the establishment of criteria for meeting these goals, one can endeavor to manage his or her time wisely and, under the guiding hand of personal discipline, enrich and benefit their own lives and society. Given our world of limited resources, Economics is concerned with how best to allocate these scarce resources among competing uses. Not only do I view Economics as the very foundation of the business world, I also believe that a proper understanding of our academic discipline views Economics on a deeper philosophical level. As believers we are called to be wise stewards of God’s handiwork. What is the very best we do for ourselves and for our world, given His manifold blessings? Economic theory provides a redoubtable framework under which to pursue this noble task.
