My name is Matěj (Matt) Adámek, known as Mattved in the on-line world. I am a data analyst keen to apply my knowledge in fields of Marketing and Procurement before becoming a teacher at a later age. Currently, I study Econometrics at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and already hold BSc in Economics from University of Plymouth.

My preferred leisure activities include landscape and architecture photography, roaming tourist-free streets of european cities, computer gaming, digital art, or cooking. Sportwise, I used to swim a lot, but stick to cycling nowadays. Finally, key causes one might guess while listening to me include education towards critical thinking and responsible resource management.

Political alignment

I align towards a regulated economy but can't stress enough that regulations must be of lowest magnitude possible. Preserving both household and business welfare close to natural levels.

Economic alignment

From Economic perspective, I am an orthodox dissenter relatively close to the new Keynesian school of economics. This means that I don't believe in the axiom that markets clear on their own. My opinion is that some dead weight loss caused by government interventions is outweighed by their social effects.

An introvert with need for social interaction apt to abstract thinking rather diligent in completing my tasks and holding up to an established routine. Although I am a night owl with flexible daily schedule, my body clock adjusts easily, rendering be to be able to focus on my responsibilities.

In a company of people, I am altruistic and attentive, reading between the lines and observing non-verbal aspects of others. Among extroverts, I usually remain silent, however don't hesitate to talk while having something to say to the point. I have a biting sense of humor and can be critical at times, which is however outweighed by my ability to appreciate effort.

Regarding my self-interest, I tend to struggle representing my own desires, rather focusing on satisfying people around me, which makes me prone to abuse from sociopaths and self-important people. Yet, whenever there is something I want to achieve, acting through doing instead of talking is my way to go
