…TehTarikEconomists? Who are you la?

We are a bunch of young Economics majors with a deep passion for talking and thinking about the subject, especially when it involves a cup of teh tarik on the side. This blog is the culmination of our thoughts on Economics, more often than not with a Malaysian flavour. There will also be occasional commentaries on current economic policy, as well as recommendations for interesting Economic journals and articles we pick up in our day-to-day browsing.

The TTEs comprise Michelle and Jin Tik, and a couple of regular guest writers whom we feed cookies regularly to keep them writing for us. (Kidding!) Oh, there’s also Zhi Wei, our in-house illustrator, who doodles fat penguins in his spare time…

But if I don’t read Economics, does that mean I won’t understand what’s on this blog? *makes to leave* —

Not necessarily! All articles on TTE are classified into three levels of difficulty to make TTE as accessible to everyone as possible. They are:

  • EconStart. For those new to Economics or are looking to start out in it. In other words, this will be where you’ll find articles for the average layman – accessible and understandable (we hope!) to all.
  • EconSmart. For the Economics majors who have a decent grasp of the basics and more intermediate level stuff. Expect the use of words like ‘marginal utility’.
  • EconRut. When the TTEs try to dig into the real ruts of Economics. This may be where we publish our own models, theorisations, and research that border on technicality.
