Thanks for checking out Economic Forces, a weekly newsletter by Brian Albrecht and Josh Hendrickson. We are both professors of economics with a passion for we call “price theory,” a particular approach to economics that used to be taught at places like UCLA and Chicago. This newsletter is our attempt to work through and clarify points in price theory.

Our Avatar

No. Neither of us is the strapping gentleman in our avatar. That is Armen Alchian, former UCLA economist and one of the founders of property rights economics. Our title, Economic Forces, is a homage to Alchian’s selected works, Economic Forces at Work.
