About meProfessional Operations Researcher.

I love to read about great industrialists, business history, and industrial history. Other intellectual interests artificial intelligence, technological impacts on human life, free market capitalism, and how ideas move the world. I used to frequently read a lot about Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism, Austrian Economics, rational secularism, and free market capitalism, but I find there are diminishing returns to continuing to read more theoretical topics once you have a foundation for your world view.

About my libraryI love reading and collecting books, I frequently peruse used bookstores, but I am a very selective reader and I frequently winnow my library. I regularly acquire new books and I regularly donate unwanted books to local libraries.


Favorite authorsBryan Caplan, Tyler Cowen, Burton W. Folsom, Milton Friedman, Victor Davis Hanson, Sam Harris, Arthur Herman, Maury Klein, Marc Levinson, Ayn Rand, Julian Lincoln Simon, Thomas Sowell (Shared favorites)
