the makeonomics blog….

February 27, 2011

I began this website to serve as a container for the ideas that are feeding into my dissertation.  There are so many overlapping transdiciplinary ideas and it’s so difficult to keep track of them all.  This just seemed like a logical way to help me organize my thoughts.

At the same time, I think the ideas contained here (and ultimately in my dissertation) are not only valuable to me, but also have some implications about how we live and how to improve our quality of life.  It is my hope that we, as a culture, spend more time thinking about our subjective well being.  I spend a lot of time thinking about the impact of consumer culture and the cognitive scripts of capitalism on our daily lived experiences.  Basically, I think maybe we could be doing this better.
