#GAIN Index, in python

I am porting the Gain Index, curerntly in VBA, into Python using pandas package.

Work in progress, but feel free to pitch in.

##Why VBA

  • We started in VBA because of the in-experience of some of us that allowed us to move fast.
  • Also because it seems the de-facto standard for reserach in economics

##Why move away from VBA

  • Many reasons, but mostly for getting rid of its many quirks and performance issues.
  • Also testing new approaches to allow better work with the Index in the future.

##Why Python

  • Plain text coding in separate makes easier to develop and collaborate
  • Great potantieal for test, visualizations, and mining of the results.
