My name is Mark Biernat and I am a Professor of Economics. This site is about Economics as it affects your life. I am also a second-year Ph.D. student in Economics and Finance (my thesis is on the Natural Rate of Interest and Money Macro Equilibrium).
On this I stress Classic Economic ideas. Ideas from the great minds of the past, often that have been neglected or misunderstood.
A common fallacy is ‘people ‘back then did not know as much as people today’. I would argue perhaps it is in today’s time we have been distracted by the modern economy and have lost the insights from a time when reflection on the ideas of Political Economy was both subtle and powerful.
Great Knowledge is often forgotten. I want to make sure that does not happen.
Specifically, I provide the words and books of:
- Adam Smith
- Karl Marx
- Knut Wicksell
- Ludwig Von Mises
- John Maynard Keynes
- F. A. Hayek
in economics, as a free resource to download so, you can read or the original ideas yourself.
- Great minds as these economists come around only once every 100 years or so.
On this site, I also have personal commentary on Politics and Economics that you will find interesting. These are not academic articles that have been peer-reviewed, more for fun, but no less relevant.

I recommend my video on the Causes of the Great Depression to start.
