About Me:I'm interested in economics, math, and political science. Note: I've said a lot of dumb things and a lot of things I strongly and mildly disagree with in my time on the site. My former forum posts are rarely reflective of who I am today.
Beliefs:I'm a moral realist, preference utilitarian, and neoliberal. I like free markets, redistribution for the poor (because of diminishing marginal utility), somewhat-dovish monetary policy from independent central banks, and strong protections for animal welfare. I'm also sympathetic to effective altruist ideas.

If you are one of these people,...

In 2019 government should be of BJP


I think for the development of country like India we need a government that can take bold decisions. This is not a time when a government would survive only by protecting its vote bank or to win sympathy of a particular section. A leader should invest fund in the growth of country rather than his own future. Infrastructure of country should be developed so that we can stand proudly in front of world....
