This book gives an introduction to R to build up graphing, simulating and computing skills to enable one to see theoretical
and statistical models in economics in a unified way. The great advantage of R is that it is free, extremely flexible and
extensible. The book addresses the specific needs of economists, and helps them move up the R learning curve. It covers some
mathematical topics such as, graphing the Cobb-Douglas function, using R to study the Solow growth model, in addition to statistical
topics, from drawing statistical graphs to doing linear and logistic regression. It uses data that can be downloaded from
the internet, and which is also available in different R packages. With some treatment of basic econometrics, the book discusses
quantitative economics broadly and simply, looking at models in the light of data. Students of economics or economists keen
to learn how to use R would find this book very useful.
