Reviews

‘In such a rapidly expanding subject as econometrics, it becomes increasingly difficult to do full justice to every field. This book embodies the brilliant notion of having distinguished authorities in each field contribute the chapters. As a supplement to a textbook, or a source of reference in its own right, it represents a superb resource for students and research workers.’ James Davidson, Cardiff University
