What is Sage Economics?
A newsletter Anirban Basu and Zack Fritz about economics and policy. Paid subscribers get at least two weekly posts. Non-paid subscribers get one weekly post (also plus more, on occasion).
Who are we?
Anirban, economist (hold your applause), is the chairman & CEO of Sage Policy Group, an economic and policy consulting firm headquartered in Baltimore. Anirban has more graduate degrees than he does arms and legs, serves as the chief economist for several organizations, and can be seen speaking to audiences around the country (and world). Read more about him here, and more about Sage Policy Group here.
Zack is the COO of Sage Policy Group. What he lacks in graduate degrees, chief economist postings, and general renown, he makes up for with his can-do attitude and slightly better than average work ethic.
