Eric's current situation:

Currently I am a 19 year old student in the Honors College of the University of Michigan studying economics. I'm a bit of a loud mouth and very much a geek that just also happens to like economics and finance. Be careful, once you get me going, it can hard to slow me down!

Eric's blog post:

Hi! My name is Eric Hackenberger and I love economics. To tell the truth it's a weird thing to have a passion about. Most people have favorite athletes, I have favorite economists. Most people have hobbies, but I bet few include writing about the current events from an economic perspective, talking to everyone anywhere about current events and explaining economics for fun.

I want to bring the same passion I have for writing, discussion and economics to the personal finance realm and help college students save money, manage their finances and achieve their fiscal goals. As your Young and Free Michigan Spokesperson, I would go beyond finding deals and giving suggestions to save money, but also help people change their spending habits and saving habits so that they can truly be the master of their money.

I will always be within reach, via text message, email, Facebook and more! Ask me questions anytime of the day and I promise a prompt and thorough response! Have a suggestion? I'd love to hear how I can better serve you, so that you can make the most out of your money, your time and your life.

If you're looking for a candidate that can bring you entertaining and informative videos, blog posts and more, then vote for Eric Hackenberger for your Young and Free Michigan Spokesperson!
