This blog is exactly what the title suggests:It contains the leftovers and tidbits that are of interest to me but that don't fit other outlets of which I have a few.
As a behavioral economist, I publish academic papers which are serious research (or so I'm told), but do not attract a wide audience (or so I assume). I look forward to writing more freely here about what drives people to behave in ways that often contradict mainstream economic theory. As someone with other diverse interests, ranging from Taekwon-Do to food to fashion, I will also be leaving posts on a variety of random topics.
Finally, to clarify the seeming typo in the title of the blog: Evan is my son's name, and he is three at the time of this post. Many posts here will have a theme of how to navigate and balance family, parenthood, career, and hobbies. There is no such thing as 'having it all', but there is such a thing as compromising to achieve balance.
