This site can best be described as a perfect complement to traditional economics education.
Think of ecoNomNomnomics as a fusion of an introduction to economic principles and lolcats. If you have not been introduced to lolcats yet, you may not fully appreciate the joke. We believe that economics is both fascinating and important to understand, and we really like webcomics.

Who started all of this?
I’m Joy and I am a Ph.D. student in economics at George Mason University in Virginia. My goal is to become an economics professor. I have taught several classes as a graduate lecturer and my students tell me that this website if useful to them. In 2011 I graduated from the Master’s program with the Economic Science Institute at Chapman University where I had the opportunity to do research on auction theory and intellectual property. I like what I do even though it’s less funny than lolcats and arguably will never increase social welfare more than xkcd.com. My second creative outlet is a historical fiction novel about Nicodemus, check out: www.NicodemusStory.com

This theme is being turned into a serious of blogs, for example on supply.
This is a picture of me at Chapman with Nobel Laureate Vernon Smith. The Economic Science Institute program offers personal attention to students and freedom to pursue what interests you about economics.
