Today was my last day at the 2014 JSM in Boston - unfortunately I'm unable to stay on for tomorrow's sessions.
As always, it was a terrific meeting - extremely well organized, and with a huge number of interesting papers from a very diverse range of contributors. There were too many highlights to cover here. Suffice to say that I'll be going home with a lot of material that I'll be wanting to follow up in the coming months.
In addition to catching up with various professional acquaintances, it was great to meet some new people. At the top of my list in this respect were Gareth Thomas and Glenn Sueyoshi, from EViews.
Among the things that we discussed were some of the new features that will be included in EViews 9, when it is released. My lips are sealed, of course, but rest assured that followers of this blog will enjoy these new features a lot!
So, now it's back to reality..................
