Python!


I have put together the 0.1-beta version of IEtools (Information Equilibrium tools) for python (along with a demo jupyter notebook looking at the unemployment rate and NGDP/L). Everything is available in my GitHub repositories. The direct link to the python repository is:

While I still love Mathematica, (and will likely continue to use it for most of my work here), python is free for everybody.

  1. Awesome stuff Jason. Cheeky error messages included "ValueError('How did you get a postive integer modulo 3 that was not 0, 1, or 2?')" :)

  2. Thanks to the influence of this blog, I'm starting to use Mathematica and wow! I could never begin to operate so efficiently in Excel. It really says something that many of the world's most influential economists use Excel at all.

    1. That's great!

      Not everyone can afford Mathematica, however the Anaconda distribution of python includes jupyter notebook which is very much like a python version of Mathematica (screen shot from above) running in a web browser.

  3. Jason,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'm actually trying out online Mathematica, which is very affordable, costing only $25/month. But, I'll take a look at that other notebook too.

Also, try to avoid the use of dollar signs as they interfere with my setup of mathjax. I left it set up that way because I think this is funny for an economics blog. You can use € or £ instead.
