I’m Rick, I’m an economist.

I’m in my final year of my Bachelor’s degree at San Jose State University. I intend to continue with a PhD. focusing mainly on Public Choice Theory. Ultimately I want to study possible answers to the following question:

How did a country founded on the ideas of individual liberty (with an educated populace the firmly believed in the necessity of liberty) end up with a gigantic government that most people do not like but that doesn’t show any signs of going away, and what can we do about it?

That’s a big question (literally and figuratively… I’ll work on refining it).

On any of these posts, I appreciate your feedback, input and criticism. Especially good criticism.
