Warning: Text book notes

I’ve found that I don’t learn much reading – I prefer to write things in order to learn them.  I don’t know what it is, when I’m reading I just stop paying attention.  My favourite way to learn things is for someone to say it at me – but this isn’t always practical.

As a result, there will be occasional posts where I am arbitrarily writing about a chapter in a text book.  I’ll be starting with a refresher on the basic New Keynesian model, and then moving through books from there.

I will label posts that are of this nature so that you can skip them – they won’t have anything really in them but my run down of what I think is in a chapter I’ve just read.  I’m only putting them up here, so I can go back to them later – if I didn’t save my notes here I would probably lose them.

    A textbook on witchcraft? 🙂

  • @Paul Walker


    Going back through Mas-Colell would probably kill me – need to hit something a little simplier 😉

  • I’m the same, when I read a book (especially an ebook) my mind wonders when I’m reading without me even realising and then when I notice I have to go back and read the same paragrah a few times because it keeps happening. I’m better with books that have been made into an audiobook 🙂
