Nope. It is my opinion. I am free to have mine and you are free to have yours.
What they teach there...in this class for example....are the models and some of the math that goes into making these models. You are free to work on projects that utilize these models.
I worked on a project last summer that was an utter failure because I was unable get the right variables for the equation. I was getting close. I was researching how economic indicators affected Obama's approval ratings. In general, changes in employment and personal income had the largest impact.
Because some of the data was quarterly rather than monthly I tried using polynomial interpolation to change the quarterly data but couldn't get STATA to do it right. So I had to change the monthly data into quarterly data. As a result there were fewer observations.
This type of math gives you insight into which variables affect the dependent variable.
You'll never get a straight perfect answer but you'll be in the ballpark.
And if you are a Republican running against Obama, you probably should advertise nothing but his failed promises to create jobs. See? Other variables really don't matter as much, I discovered.
It's always useful. Nearly every country releases economic indicators, for instance. It gives you a set of tools to figure out what variables might affect others. It can give you an investing edge.
You don't need to use these models for economics either. They are useful for many other things. Essentially they are a set of conceptual, rather than analytical, differential equations. Each coefficient is a partial derivative.
You can use this stuff for forecasting. It doesn't mean that you will be very accurate. You just need to be in the ballpark.
I can afford to take these risks because I am not married and have not made children with multiple women like you have. Further, I can take interesting classes because I am more or less already done with the MBA. That part was easy.
My parents will buy me a house soon and that means that I won't have a mortgage.
Stockton is worse than Reno, it's worse than Ciudad Juarez. It's a toilet of unknown proportions. i have driven through stockton and it is a fucking fuckhole. Much like Fairfield, vallejo, modesto, eureka.
Eureka is a fucking shithole too. Eureka is a depressing fuckhole where 90% of the people are on welfare. I am surprised they aren't scraping by on banana slugs by now.
Because they stink and he should never have been admitted to Harvard. At best he could match Perry. And Perry, although obviously academically a moron, took harder than average courses.
Obama likely took cake shit and likely eeked out a 2.8 or something.
Which leaves one to wonder whose cock he sucked to get into Harvard. You know he had to have had low GPA and LSAT scores. Yet he got into Harvard. Some liberal mentally ill yahoo must have pulled some paladium strings or something.
