Yesterday, I got a comment in regard to my use of "Dismal Science" with regard to Economics (shocking truth?). Of course, I had my usage (very valid extension of the meanings). And, I see that there has been a lot of discussion on the web. So, we'll be picking that up here for a theme.
While looking at the commentator's Profile, I noticed that there were tens of these related to finance, including some on financial engineering (my earlier posts). Blogs are static affairs. One writes and can look at counts. Sometimes, there are comments. But, it's one-sided. Quora is more full in that several opinions can be expressed. That is, opinion meaning a viewpoint based upon assumptions and differences in understanding.
So, expect that there will be more here that ties these two paradigms.
