Economics

Big data analytics

It is that dangerous time of the year when I am already done with 2016 (in my head) and start to think about things to do in 2017 with all the idealism of new year’s resolutions. Can an old dog economist still learn new big data analytics tricks?

So this is a note to self: Coursera has a course in R and Code School also has one that looks cool.

And then, a shout out to colleagues and their student featuring on the Development Impact blog: Martin Abel’s job market paper ā€œThe Value of Reference Lettersā€, is coauthored with Rulof Burger (SU) and Patrizio Piraino (UCT).
