About me

Journalist, noun: a machine for turning caffeine into words.

I’m Sam Ashworth-Hayes, and I am to greater or lesser extents a freelance journalist, a senior economist at The Behaviouralist, and a purveyor of dubious takes. The articles on this site do not represent the views of my employer or even necessarily myself. I read for a bachelor of science in economics at York, and an MPhil in the same at Balliol, and if I completely lose my mind I might go back into academia for a PhD at some point.

I’m on twitter as @SAshworthHayes, and if for some reason reading this site hasn’t put you off the idea, you can contact me here:
