Programming languages in economics: Cool research, bro, but what about, er, economics?

Re: Mathematica, IDL

Mathematica will compile to C++, so it can run pretty fast as long as your data structure isn't any more complicated then an array. I guess that is considered language specific.

What surprised me most in the paper( yes I went and read it, mostly) was that the gcc compiler beat both the ifort and intel c. I would have to image that is due to auto vectorization.

Re: Sauce for the goose.-

Invalidating patents and copyrights of U.S companies in EU. would have no effect.

If fact it would only assist Berry in his mission to destroy U.S. business.

He would spin it as more redistribution to his freeshit army.

OHM MY GOD! Move over graphene, here comes '100% PERFECT' stanene

Re: Resistance is futile

Yes but with super conduction nano wire we could build room temperature super conducting memristors that function in the pico second range.

Then HP could put them up on a shelf, join hands and dance around singing "we have something you can't have."

Anonymous leaks 'Bank of America secrets' in spy revenge hack

Re: No news there

Banks are complete bastards, but a bank never rounded up a whole village shot everyone, boiled up the bodies and feed them to the red army because they had run out of horse meat and road-kill.

That's a good day for zee central Kommitte

Not really. If the banks fail then we will have to do business with zee central kommitte.

Anonymous stole OneCalais software and put dumped it to the public. So now some team of coders will probably be looking for work when OneCalais fails.

Anonymous stopped being funny 5 years ago.

Google pits C++ against Java, Scala, and Go

FORTAN

The only "high" level language that regularly beats C++ is FORTRAN. 50 years old and still the champ. Of course the FORTRAN code must be recompiled for each machine architecture and the FORTRAN compiler is written in C++.
