"I probably have an unhealthy attraction to the powers of Excel. I taught my daughter how to use it when she was 7. When I teach corporate finance, I try to make sure that my law students come away from the course knowing how to crunch in Excel."
"And R is probably not kept up to speed on the cutting-edge empirical methods as quickly as the traditional packages. "
Yep, I'd say an unhealthy attraction to Excel and an stunning lack of knowledge about R.
I note that many contributers seem to be pointing out that R is just a bit better than the author seems to think it is.
