If it Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It!

For the most part I like engineers. In fact, some of my best friends are engineers. However, there's always the exception that "proves" the rule!

Back in 1978 I was appointed to a chair (full professorship) in what was then the Department of Econometrics & Operations Research at Monash University, in Australia. It's now the Department of Econometrics & Business Statistics. It was, and still is, a terrific department to be associated with. My colleagues and our students were wonderful. and I had nine productive years there.
