BEA API Wrapper Needed?

I have been busy working on the BEA API Python wrapper when I came across a great blog post – R vs Python Round 3.  This blog post introduced me to Quandl, which may deliver all the economic data I could ever want.  I haven’t had the time to really dig in.  We’ll see if it is needed.

I have also been toying with R.  I do this seasonal adjustment of employment data every month at work.  I would love to move the work out of SPSS and into R.  Especially since R can integrate with our MySQL data warehouse.
