Someone is being very childish.
I kind of understand why the original poster just left, it's very easy to find out what a quant economist is - just google the two separate words.

OP>>> 200k is some serious change - including the allowances I'm guessing a 50% uplift on your job in London. Watch for bonuses though - the culture might not be what you are expecting...
I figure you're kidding but quants work in front office, where all the money is, not the basement. Just saying.

Yes, very easy, but then just as easy for the OP, or anyone else too. It wasn't as if the question asked was that out of the ball park.

Then again, you probably didn't see all the lovely bleating, rude posts that the OP made, towards everyone, including those who posted information.

What money? They're best at losing it.........Havent you read the stories lately, JPM for example.

They are also the real culprits behind Mortgage/Asset backed securities, which has thrown the whole world into a financial tailspin.
