all you need to know about modelling.

In a meeting this morning, a very successful Economics Professor* said to me;
“I've tried [econometric time series analysis] a few times but I've never been able to estimate anything useful.”


He is a very bright fellow, and is straight up about things. He has also declared that the parameter values that he is using in a particular model literally “are no more than guesses”.

* He does have a name, but I have a job.

Am not sure that the spam bots are getting clever, perhaps just more prolific. I am not sure how I was mistaken for a blogger focussing upon the treatment of testicularr cancer.

Hmmm...

I may have to work out a way of dealing with this. Anyone (non-bot) who has suggestions??
