According to research by Joshua Gans, I am the happiest of the six Australian econ-bloggers in his survey. What can one do but smile?
Stop it! You are making the rest of us look bad.
LOL. I think you mean ‘look serious’… which is preferable in our business, right?
You could grin?
Or take over Clive Hamilton (surely happiness-people must be amongst the truly least ‘happy’ professions in the world)
Thought I would also share a quote:
“Five characteristics go into the making of a first-rate econometrician: meticulousness, to minimize the number of frank errors; impartiality in practice, so all those difficult calls get made even-handedly; technical competence to make the right calls on the tricky specification questions; ingenuity in finding and exploiting natural variations in the independent variables to explore their impact on the dependent variables; and appropriate modesty in making claims about the meaning of the results. ”
Its in the context of suspiciously less-than-top-quality agenda-driven research on gun law effects – on the pro-gun side.
