The Beginnings

  • Andrei was born on the year where Romania converted from dictatorship to democracy. He grew up with the idea, brought about by his parents and grandparents; that doing things on your own and being your own boss were uncommon.
  • Although a school system existed, it didn’t work well enough. So Andrei decided to do things in his own way.
  • Andrei decided to venture into the online world by doing articles and domain investing.

One Minute Economics

  • Through Andrei’s One Minute Economics channel, he teaches people economics in an easy-to-understand manner.
  • Instead of define terms, he explains and I try to do it in a way that ensures you won’t forget what you’ve just learned after a week or a month. A teaching style proven to be worth listening to.
