How are you doing the word count? Are you counting words or actual english words? (With LaTeX you have a bunch of code words).

yeah
I know it might not be the most efficient way, but i am copying the pdf file text and pasting it into word

That doesn’t actually answer my question.
Ah right, I understand.

I have 24000 words, without counting appendices, executive sumamary, table of contents, table of figures, etc. (the stuff that isnot included in the word count)
Should I take words out from when I am giving a historical references?

The appendix does not count though, are you counting the appendix?

Hehe… Don’t worry too much about it, if you can reduce it great. Not a terrible outcome to reduce it because some of your writing is quite long.

I wanted ask you, if I should take stuff out, like the studies that were done before Neumann's and Morgenstern's book?

No that’s interesting and shows a strong prior knowledge but you can keep it brief if you need to.
