Happy New Year 2014, and welcome to JC Economics Essays!
I set up this economics blog several years ago, in late 2007 (so it's really in 2008 that I started the ball rolling), and it has been a long six years.
In that time, there have been essay contributions from junior college students from all over Singapore, as well as many kind sharings by my colleagues and friends from the National Institute of Education as well as some of my own essays and writing.
Recently, I have not been writing or posting many essays, and that is about to change. Also, for this coming year in 2014 there should be a wider range of more interesting materials, including economics materials for case studies and general knowledge. Hopefully I manage to achieve my resolutions for the year 2014, and this proves to be another record breaking year! :)
On this celebratory note, I would like to start 2014 by thanking my loyal readers and students who have been supporting this economics website. Thank you for reading, and thank you for your very kind, constructive, and interesting comments. It has been a joy sharing and contributing these essays for students' benefit, as well as for the general reader who would like to learn a bit of economics - I hope!
In any case, the next post to follow is a sharing on my favourite economics quotes by famous economists - and I choose those economists I like, as well as some of those economists who I don't really subscribe to, but who are famous enough to appear on the H1, H2, and H3 economics A level syllabus. Most of the time, I find, the Austrian economists I so adore and admire and not really present in the A level syllabus or the undergraduate economics curriculum, but one day this situation might change - hopefully for the better! This is because to me, economics is a really beautiful subject and it is rich, diverse, and really, really interesting because of its range of views and perspectives.
I hope reading this blog widens your perspective as well, and you appreciate the various views that various students of economics bring to the table.
Thank you for reading this basic introductory note, and welcome (back) to JC Economics Essays. Thanks for reading and cheers!
