About

My name is Roma, welcome!

This blog documents my ideas and analysis of a steady-state economy, as well as the endeavor to educate the public about how we can create an economy and society that serves us better.

When I dissect economic theory, I will attempt to write in an objective mannner with the intent of presenting a balanced analysis of the issues. At the same time, I recognize that I have preconceived biases that will probably reveal their nature.

I have been blessed with the understanding that we as a world have a problem and the optimism to know that we can still do something about it! I owe a lot to the experts who have influenced me. I describe these influences in the Resources section.

I’ve devoted quite a bit of my free time in the past 3 years to honing my public speaking and leaderships skills thru Toastmasters International. Since my goal is to spread my ideas to people and be a change agent, the Public Speaking section of this site will highlight speaking engagemets in audio/video format, as well as my thoughts on this matter. If you’d like me to give a talk, please contact me.

A little bit about me: I was born in Moscow, Russia, grew up in NYC and have lived in Portland, OR for the past 3 years. My previous job was as a sales consultant at SolarCity, America’s leading solar energy company, where I did my small share to curb global warming emissions. I am currently applying to grad school in order to study data analytics. Smart grids, one of the key elements to shifting to a low-carbon economy, will produce copious amounts of data, which will require specialists to interpret.

I’ve lived in Japan for 2 years and can speak Japanese.

I am in an exciting phase of my life and look forward to sharing my ideas about economics, the environment and data analytics with the world!
