I'm wonderig if also for economists R would be as great for their regressions as for statisticians. I seriously can't think of any other software with the flexibility and power of it. Plus it's free...I guess it's a matter of comparing R benefits vs switching costs related to the learning process. Problem is: how the hell you can estimate these two variables...
