Welcome to Tregernomics. My name is Adam Treger, and this is my politics and economics blog. I’m an 18 year old student doing my second year of A levels. I’m fascinated by economics and politics, but until last year I hadn’t had the opportunity to study them. So I decided to reach out to eminent people in these areas, in the hope that they would answer my questions.

The people I approach have led extraordinary lives, garnering life lessons over decades. Each one has stories to tell and views to impart. And now I want to share them with you. To find out more, visit the About Tregernomics page.

Every fortnight, I post a new interview. Tregernomics launched on 14th September 2015, and there were daily interviews for the first five days to celebrate.

You can keep up to date with upcoming interviews on Twitter and Facebook, and view selfies with those I have interviewed on Instagram.

Previous interview: 06/10/17 – Special Coordinator Nickolay Mladenov, UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process
