Book release - Analyzing Financial and Economic Data with R (2º edition)

After a couple of unexpected delays, I am very pleased to announce the publication of the second edition of my book, Analyzing Financial and Economic Data with R. You can find it in Amazon as an ebook or paperback. An online version is available here. More details, including supplementary material, are available in the book webpage. The first edition was released back in 2017 and it was a great journey working once again in this material. Many sections and chapters have been improved, along with new content.

Anyone can use it, without the need of purchasing the book (but off course it would help). To access the files, first install the package from Github with devtools (ignore warning messages about long paths):

Let me summarize the main changes from the previous edition:
