Jean Pierre Florens – Econometric Modeling & Inference
Presents the main statistical tools of econometrics, focusing specifically on modern econometric methodology. The authors unify the approach by using a small number of estimation techniques, mainly generalized method of moments (GMM) estimation and kernel smoothing. The choice of GMM is explained by its relevance in structural econometrics and its preeminent position in econometrics overall. Split into four parts, Part I explains general methods. Part II studies statistical models that are best suited for microeconomic data. Part III deals with dynamic models that are designed for macroeconomic and financial applications. In Part IV the authors synthesize a set of problems that are specific to statistical methods in structural econometrics, namely identification and over-identification, simultaneity, and unobservability. Many theoretical examples illustrate the discussion and can be treated as application exercises. Nobel Laureate James A. Heckman offers a foreword to the work.
Review Jean Pierre Florens – Econometric Modeling & Inference
“…an updated and well-balanced bird’s-eye view of the basic econometric concepts and analyses with informative references on the respective topics for the benefit of readers’ further study, covering the traditional simultaneous-equation approach as well as the recent parametric and semiparametric time-series analyses.” Jean Pierre Florens – Econometric Modeling & Inference
Yuzo Hosoya, Mathematical Reviews
“… May make a great contribution to teaching the next generation of theoretical econometricians. For the statistician comfortable with formal mathematics, Econometric Modeling and Inference provides an excellent, low-cost opportunity to catch up with what the econometrics subfield has been doing.”
Richard Startz, University of Washington for Journal of the American Statistical Association Jean Pierre Florens – Econometric Modeling & Inference
The goal of this book is to present the main statistical tools of econometrics, focusing specifically on modern econometric methodology. The authors unify the approach by using a small number of estimation techniques, mainly generalized method of moments (GMM) estimation and kernel smoothing.
