My aspiration is to ensure a thriving future for our posterity. I'm particularly interested in economic growth and have a background in growth theory.

More about me here. There is also Benjamin Yeoh's podcast with me.

I originally hail from Germany, though I came to the U.S. for college at 15. I now live in beautiful Berkeley, California.

I'm active on Twitter.

The Inspiration

Consider the preamble of the United States Constitution, 1787:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

It is my aspiration to help "secure the Blessings of Liberty to ... our Posterity." I'm particularly worried about our societal decadence.
