I have a friend from Lucent. He studied Physics at the University of Colorado. Now he is working for the financial sector in Chicago. If I am right, and all Theoretical Physics is sophisticated curve fitting, I wonder if I can just as well fit financial behavior?
I'm reading an econometrics paper in arXiv. I was inspired by this year's Economics Nobel Prize in Cause and Effect in Macroeconomics. NYT.
I was biased against finances, I thought there was no way to guess right.
Now I wonder.
BTW, I'm studying R.
