I am a reseach associate at a D.C. think-tank studying the history of modern central banking. Before that, I worked at a macro hedge fund. Before that, I studied history in college.

Several thinkers and books have deeply influenced my understanding of financial markets and the economy. I would be remiss if I did not give credit where it was due. Below, a list. The order is roughly chronological based on when I encountered each thinker or specific book. Inclusion does not imply unqualified endorsement of all the views they express.

F. A. Hayek

Ludwig Wittgenstein

Donald Kagan

Ray Dalio

The Drunkard’s Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives by Leonard Mlodwinow

Manias, Panics, and Crashes: A History of Financial Crises by Charles P. Kindleberger
