How is the data for monthly price calculations collected for the CPI ?
Nevermind, fellas I found it. For those interested...
Great! Now I only have to lookup CPI. J/k. Consumer Price Index. Got it.
this piqued my curiousity. not because of the question, but i'm wondering are there any other economists/future economists (1 year left in my B.A, then off for more school for me) here?
Got my VA degree in Economics many moons ago then went into Banking and Real Estate. For fun or when I have had a few too many toddys I like to stir up controversy with people who consider Economics the dry science. Nothing is more controversial than arguments over money.
All of my friends on Wall Street say that the firms don't really encourage their recruits to major in econ. The professors instill in their students mindsets that the firms find to be false and difficult to reteach. They prefer history majors. Personally, bond trading and the like are way too boring for me. If I wanted to stare at an Excel spreadsheet for hours on end, I might as well learn to program. Money is good though...
