Here I share my economist’s views and ideas on different subjects. I write about economics, climate, real estate, inequality, and other subjects. The site is maintained by Martin van Elp, a Dutch economist.

Under Vantage I try to frequently look at world events and apply economics to it. The format is one paragraph describing the situation, one paragraph on the economics, and then one paragraph policy advice.

There are also dedicated sections for climate and real estate with articles about economic concepts in these fields. The small books section has selective summaries of books read.
