professor

Not an enjoyable class, though the idea of econometrics is cool-and Malgosia emphasizes this-Correlation does not mean causality. But the actual math and stats behind all of this is unbearable to follow after 7 pm. Do not take this class when you're tired. OR just don't go to lecture. Most people ended up chewing her out, but really it had nothing to do with the professor. On a better note, the TA's for this course are more than competent, which is more than one can say for the rest of economics courses at Columbia. At the very least, this course is not all bullshit like other econ courses.
