Chapter 14 was a pretty interesting read and there are some interesting theories and ideas about how and why we are wrong when estimating or relying on intuition.

A tutorial this weekend has certainly made what is required for the end of course project a lot clearer. I need to finish this chapter and the next and find something that catches my eye to base the project on. I am pretty sure the project will be about wages, but I need to see if my employer will play ball or not, if not it may then be an econometric project which I'd rather avoid.

Hoping for an early turn around on the last TMA being marked, promises have been made :-)
