My Actifit Report Card and Update: May 3 2021

in Actifit12 days ago (edited)

Hi Actifitters,

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. The weather has been a little chilly for late spring. At least it has been quite dry, which has meant I have been able to remain consistently active. I took several walks by the lake with my doggy pal Mango. In terms of wildlife, the lake has been fairly quiet. Hopefully, we'll see the swans again soon with their new babies. In terms of people, it has been less quiet. People are out and about enjoying the dry weather. I'm surprised they were not all at the shops as Covid-19 restrictions have been relaxed a little.

My Content


I have posted twice since my previous Actifit Report and Update (my aim for most weeks). My first post contained a video. In the video, I discussed some of my economics work over my years as an economist. I went back to my Master's thesis about education and my application of intertemporal choice models and relative utility. I discussed my many years working on Cost Benefit Analysis in the transport sector as well as my development of the Social Impact Evaulation frameworks. I also discussed some of the work I have done since joining Hive. The video is a follow up to a written post from over a year ago. The video could also be seen as a follow up to my video, 'Why I choose to be an Economist on Hive', which I posted just over a week ago.


In my second post, I revisted 'The Great Reset'. At the start of the year, I posted a short series about the book 'Covid-19: The Great Reset'. In my most recent post, I explored the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which is an important precursor to the Great Reset. The World Economic Forum has many articles about both the Great Reset and Fourth Industrial Revolution. The most useful tool they have to summarise the key points is an inteteractive information wheel. In my post, I discuss many of the key areas and how they appear to relate to each other.

Changes to the Buying and Selling Game

I have decided to make a few changes to the Buying and Selling Game. I am going to run an new version of the game, which I might alternate with the existing version. In the new version, the focus will be on determining a selling price rather than relying on a generated selling price. This time the demand will be generated in the model instead of the price. I will make a video explaining how this game works.

That wraps up this week's Actifit Report and Update. I wish everyone an awesome week. Take care.

Just bumping up against that 10k mark!

Sounds like you walked 20k mental steps with all the economic and behavioural study. I have a firm handle, or so I would like to believe, on the basics of economics. That stuff makes my eyes cross and I feel like such a noobie.

Solid stuff once again!


Thanks @zekepickleman. Economics is great mental exercise. Hive is a great place to share information, research, analysis, and opinions.

hello @spectrumecons
This is a term I have not heard before, "the big reboot"
I think it's excellent that an economist is writing on the blockchain, it gives us a more professional point of view of the economy with a focus on coins.
