Show Notes

In this episode, we talk with Mridula Duggal who is a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at the IDEA Graduate Programme, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, and Barcelona Graduate School of Economics. Focusing on monetary policy, adaptive expectations, and fiscal policy, we are going to dive into the world of economics, I hope your Roam is open because we're going to take a lot of notes for this one. From reading research papers and taking notes in the margins, as well as handwriting her own personal notes on paper Mridula found a solution to her problem when it came to resurfacing up previous notes when she found Roam research this year. 

We talked about:

  • Her note-taking origin story: How she made the transition from only paper for note-taking into Roam Research
  • Her workflows on paper and applying those in Roam
  • The frameworks she uses when reading up research papers for her field
  • The world of macroeconomics, focusing on inflation expectations: how do agents form these expectations, what are the factors, and what policies do countries implement in response?
  • The history of inflation targeting and her interest in a specific area of macroeconomics
