About Me


Before getting started with some awkward introductions, I’d like to say how happy I am that you somehow stumbled across this obscure crevice on the internet. I’m Shrey, a 20 year old interested in finance and economics, specifically in financial markets, their intricacies and interdependencies. I’m currently a third year BSc Finance student at LSE!

Please like my Facebook page at facebook.com/shreysnotepad and follow me on Twitter at twitter.com/blogshrey to get some of my musings on various matters delivered to you!



  1. You are going to be a great trade or really thrive in finance. From my experience, try to study the likes of Soros & Buffet on their approach to trading. You will learn a lot and avoid all the noise from people who pretend they know much about investing. Really impressive articles for a person your age πŸ™‚


  2. Well done young man. Important in my humble opinion: don’t forget to write to people of your generation. Basic household economics… living on a budget…planning for retirement, etc…
    The best of luck to you.


  3. Keep hungry mate. I was writing my economic theories down at your age too. If it serves to help, I’m a trader.. I recommend any or all of the following books to provide a good foundation in the field.

  4. I’m glad that you liked my blog. Concerning your request about reblogging a post, is there any work that you’re particularly proud of?


  5. Thanks for your visit to audioecon and your comments on the IBM podcast. Your passion and interest in economics and finance are obvious – as is your intellectual curiosity. Keep it up and you will go far!


  6. Hi Shrey. Very well written articles. However, in the era of rampant identity theft, I’d caution against using what I presume is your date of birth as part of your username.


  7. Interesting article on whether the US Federal Reserve Bank should to raise interest rates. You’ve covered many issues, mostly couched in the current context –e.g., having gone to zero is raising the rate 1/4% a good or bad idea?

    There’s much that can be talked about. However, to the extent monetary policy may be a useful tool in fine tuning a nation’s economy, taking the rate to zero can never be a good idea as it takes monetary policy out of a government’s bag of tricks.

    The Fed must raise the interest rate above zero if manipulating rates is to be of any utility later. So, the Fed must raise rates to preserve its role; otherwise, it becomes all too obvious that the Fed is just another expensive and worthless government bureaucracy living on the backs of the productive like ticks.


  8. It’s my first time here and I am Impressed. Not sure what I was doing at age 15, certainly not blogging about finance and economics. Shall be following you.
