Andrie Polgar is an economist, an entrepreneur, a Youtuber, and an Author.
One of the things that I find the most amazing about Andrei is that he's is from Romania and he lives in Romania, he lives in a non-English speaking environment, yet his YouTube Channel and his books are all in English. And his English is a high level academic English.
This is a testament, that in our interconnected Internet society, time and distance are not barriers to success.
He's host of the YouTube channel, One Minute Economics, with almost 27,000 subscribers, started on November 2015 and with almost 3 million views.
Today, were talking about the release of his new book The Age of Anomaly which is being deeply discounted from $9 to $0.99 for this week only (August 6-12, 2018). I took a look at the book and it's massive and well written, in same caliber of many university level books which sell for over $100. If you are slightly interested in economics, I suggest you check it out.
