LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
We founded The Millennial Economist as a source of actionable perspectives on current events through the lens of economics for our generation.
We are dedicated to presenting economics as a way for our namesake’s generation to shape their lives as individuals, consumers, employees, and friends. As part of the ‘unlucky generation,’ we understand their curiosities, and honor their journey and skepticism.
We believe in a world where widespread economic knowledge creates a cycle of compassionate and empowered decision making, and we are committed to making that world a reality.
We envision a future where wealth and education inequalities are boldly dismantled: a world in
which where you come from doesn’t dictate what you know, because everyone deserves a firm
grasp on economics.
We understand the barriers between the average person and economic information are the jargon, the overwhelming chatter of a million news stories, and never knowing why the content matters to you.
As we build this publication, we aim to help you cut through the confusion, clarify these abstract concepts and help you understand why economics matters in your daily life.
We’re a bootstrapped nonprofit made up of a team of economists, journalists, students and creators. We’re building something of great value to our generation, and we hope you come along on this journey with us.
If you have any suggestions or questions about us, our business or our team, we’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your interest in what we’re building.
Sania Khan, Founder and Editor-in-Chief
