Citizen economics

Citizen science is Citizen science is scientific research conducted, in whole or in part, by amateur (or nonprofessional) scientists.

I like the parallel idea of a citizen economist. I have not been formally trained in economics but find myself naturally using economics principles in my daily life and applying them to my intellectual interests.

I’m confused about why this isn’t a more common phrase and wonder if others use different terminology.
