Welcome to my webpage. I am currently a Fellow in the Philosophy, Politics and Economics Program at the University of Pennsylvania. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from Simon Fraser University in April 2014. My current work (2020) is on property rights in the developing world; on the social contract foundations of business organizations, and on the value of seemingly worthless tokens.
