Hi, I’m Anne Ramstetter Wenzel, M.A., blogger for “Reflections of an Economist” and Principal with Econosystems, an economics and market research firm located in Menlo Park, California. I’m a ‘boots on the ground’ economist, and have had a passion for relating economics to every day life since I took my first economics class at San Francisco State University. I work closely with small business owners on their business plans and business strategies, so I’m always looking for growing markets.
I launched this blog so that I could share my ideas on where the economy is heading, which markets are growing or contracting, and how to navigate the crazy life of entrepreneurship.
Prior to founding Econosystems in 1999, I was economist for the Chemical Economics Handbook in the Chemical Marketing Research Center at SRI International, Menlo Park, California. I’m past president of the San Francisco and Silicon Valley chapters of the National Association for Business Economics (SF NABE), and am currently a team leader for NABE’s Get Connected organization. I received my B.A. and M.A. degrees in Economics from San Francisco State University, and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. As a liberal arts scholar, every once in a while I’ll share my thoughts on art, music and fashion via this blog.
