Benefits of our Newsletter

When I started my career as a research analyst, who just completed a graduate program in Economics, I quickly realized that there was a variance between the pictures painted in academic economics and the real-world economic canvas especially as how it relates to developing countries like Nigeria with still evolving capital markets. There is more than a passing nuance to the application of liberal economic ideas created within western contexts and what was pragmatically possible in other contexts.

The idea behind the eco215 site was to create an avenue for independent analysis, insightful commentary, and a platform for open dialogue. Through my weekly newsletters, eco215 has carved a niche for as a platform for people interested in understanding contemporary issues across the Nigerian economy and capital markets.

About

Established in 2012, eco215 is an independent economics research platform whose mission is to use objective fact-based research to improve clarity around trends across African macroeconomics, economic policies and capital markets. The master-economist must possess a rare combination of gifts .... He must be mathematician, historian, statesman, philosopher—in some degree. He must understand symbols and speak in words. He must contemplate the particular, in terms of the general, and touch abstract and concrete in the same flight of thought. He must study the present in the light of the past for the purposes of the future. No part of man's nature or his institutions must be entirely outside his regard. He must be purposeful and disinterested in a simultaneous mood, as aloof and incorruptible as an artist, yet sometimes as near to earth as a politician. ―John Maynard Keynes.

The prudent man always studies seriously and earnestly to understand whatever he professes to understand, and not merely to persuade other people that he understands it; and though his talents may not always be very brilliant, they are always perfectly genuine. He neither endeavours to impose upon you by the cunning devices of an artful impostor, nor by the arrogant airs of an assuming pedant, nor by the confident assertions of a superficial and impudent pretender. He is not ostentatious even of the abilities which he really possesses. His conversation is simple and modest, and he is averse to all the quackish arts by which other people so frequently thrust themselves into public notice and reputation. For reputation in his profession he is naturally disposed to rely a good deal upon the solidity of his knowledge and abilities; and he does not always think of cultivating the favour of those little clubs and cabals, who, in the superior arts and sciences, so often erect themselves into the supreme judges of merit; and who make it their business to celebrate the talents and virtues of one another, and to decry whatever can come into competition with them. If he ever connects himself with any society of this kind, it is merely in self-defence, not with a view to impose upon the public, but to hinder the public from being imposed upon, to his disadvantage, by the clamours, the whispers, or the intrigues, either of that particular society, or of some others of the same kind – Adam Smith (1759 – The Theory of Moral Sentiments)
