This was posted earlier on the Obama reelection website:
The Obama campaign needs quantitative analysts.
Investopedia defines quantitative analysis as:
A business or financial analysis technique that seeks to understand behavior by using complex mathematical and statistical modeling, measurement and research. By assigning a numerical value to variables, quantitative analysts try to replicate reality mathematically.
Quantitative analysis can be done for a number of reasons such as measurement, performance evaluation or valuation of a financial instrument. It can also be used to predict real world events such as changes in a share price.
Based on how the economy has performed since 2009, it might be safe to say that the Obama administration -- never mind his reelection campaign --"needs" quantitative analysts.
Remember this from 2009?
Yeah, not exactly accurate.
