## Foundations of Modern Econometrics: The Selected Essays of Ragnar Frisch, Volume 1Ragnar Frisch (1895 1973) played a major role in the foundation of econometrics as a discipline. Joint winner with Jan Tinbergen of the first Nobel prize in economics, he exerted a strong influence both on its development in the 1930s and, as editor of Econometrica for more than twenty years, its subsequent growth following the Second World War. Beginning with his early contributions to utility measurement and index problems, macrodynamics and econometric methods, this outstanding collection of his essays also features his later work on macroeconomic models and planning methods, including programming techniques and preference functions. Edited with a biographical introduction by Olav Bjerkholt, this two volume set makes many important papers readily accessible and provides a broad assessment of the work of a great econometrician. |
