Approachable Economics is a site dedicated to providing clear and concise insights into the worlds of finance and economics. AE, authored by myself Reid I'Anson, is an attempt to promote discussion on topics that require more than sound bites to understand. I hold a masters degree in economics and thoroughly enjoy playing basketball and the non-summer months in east-Texas. I'm currently an energy economist at commodity intelligence firm, Kpler, located in Houston. Feel free to reach out via LinkedIn to connect.
