Personal profile


They call me Dr. Bob.  I'm not a real doctor, but I am a real Bob.  I'm interested in things. 

I like to do econometrics.  I think I'm getting better, but I can handle criticism.

Professor Breunig is the current and founding director of the Centre for Complexity and Incoherence (CCI).  The CCI is housed within the Thermosphere of the planet we call earth and currently boasts 7.3 billion members.  Thank you for your participation!

Don't worry too much.

Does everything seems excessively complicated and difficult to understand?—don't worry. You feel that way because you are in the CCI.

Nothing makes any sense and people talk gibberish to you? Relax—you're in the CCI.

Paranoid; people are out to get you. That's not good. You should seek help.

Visiting scholars are encouraged and welcome at the CCI.  Applications should be made in person at the CCI welcome center located in Rachel, NV.  If you can find Mitch Teplitsky, he'll help you fill in the application form.
