My name is David Youngberg. I'm currently an assistant professor of economics at Bethany College. I consider myself an economist, first and foremost, though I dabble in history, politics and the sciences. I'm also a friend and colleague of box-loving economist, Michael Thomas.

I've been using Wikipedia for several years. I can't remember where I first heard about it but it might have been at an IHS summer seminar. If you've never been to an IHS seminar and are interested in the topic of liberty, I strongly suggest you attend.

Wikipedia Projects & Interests[edit]

  • Chiefly concerned with expanding and adding economic-related entries.
  • From time to time, I add my two cents to science, history and political articles.
  • Gathered together, these four disciplines encapsulate my primary research interest: institutions of technological development, or the economics of science.
