The Rise of Econometrics, Hardback Book


In the memorable words of Ragnar Frisch, econometrics is `a unification of the theoretical-quantitative and the empirical-quantitative approach to economic problems'.

Beginning to take shape in the 1930s and 1940s, econometrics is now recognized as a vital subdiscipline supported by a vast-and still rapidly growing-body of literature. Edited by a leading researcher in the history of econometrics, this new collection from Routledge's Critical Concepts in Economics series brings together in one `mini library' the best and most influential scholarship on the rise of econometrics.

The set provides an authoritative one-stop resource to enable users to understand what has shaped econometrics into its current form.

With a full index and comprehensive introductions to each volume, newly written by the editor, the collection also provides a synoptic view of many current key debates and issues.
