Você tem medo de Econometria? Tem medo do R? Não tenha. Mente aberta! Talvez ajude se eu citar alguém da área. Que tal um Nobel de Ciências Econômicas?
Perhaps no other science receives as much criticism from both its own members and outsiders as does economics, and one of the ever fashionable criticisms is that economists are slow to take account of highly relevant work in other disciplines. Modern statistics had such a development, and, judged by its fruitfulness, it was of undeniable importance in economic study. The speed and generality with which the new techniques were adopted by economists left no occasion for complaint.
Studies in the history of economics usually culminate in apology or criticism. I seize this opportunity to end one such study on a note of pride.
