The Nerd on a Mission

“It’s not enough to wish, dream, hope. Even children know this. We must set sail into the sea of uncertainty. We must meet fear face-to-face. We must take our dreams as maps for a greater journey. Dreams, to come true, need a good story. So go live one.”

― Vironika Tugaleva

The Story of THE (Awesome) Nerd

Jeez, you probably opened this page and was like really? A quote related to dream chasing? Really? What nerds, or maybe you liked it.  And by the way, nerds are cool in today’s times. Either way, we’re here to stay, and we’re going to say a lot over the years.  Check us out and you be the judge.

Anyway, I’m going to get straight to the point: we are a group of Young Professionals with a zeal for Economics and Politics.  The site was originally founded and built on the dreams of one young man, Christopher Nash. Ok, I gotta run – let me wrap this up.  But I’m going to conclude with the fact that we’re young, ambitious, and ready for success.  We’ve learned the best way to learn is through real world experience.

Our Mission

Growth is a beautiful thing; we believe in always improving oneself and never standing still.  We provide a distinct view on the world and founded The Economic Savant in December 2015 to share our knowledge and point of view on world events. Stick around and hear our perspective on current events, business news, political news, and everything in between! Our mission is to provide the world with an unfiltered, and sometimes (okay, maybe sometimes is a little understated) twisted and unhealthy spin on current events.

Our promise to our readers and subscribers is to always expose the truth, no matter the circumstances.  We are heavily influenced by Vice, and admire their style, selection, and presentation.  The Economic Savant is independently owned and operated; we have no motives, obligations, and all published material are chattels of our minds.  Many have dreams, but few follow them.  In this day and age, we want to shatter expectations of millennials and achieve eminence. With us, we believe in following our hopes, and aspirations through action.  Our subscribers are the most important thing to us; feel free to contact us at, or on Twitter @The Economic Savant.  We will reply quickly.
