About the Authors
  • Ragnar Frisch (1895-1973) received the first Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science together with Jan Tinbergen in 1969 for having played an important role in ensuring that mathematical techniques figure prominently in modern economic analysis. This collection explores his contributions to econometrics and other key fields in the discipline, as well as the results of new research. Contributors include eminent scholars from Europe, the United Kingdom and North America who investigate themes in utility measurement, production theory, microeconomic policy, econometrics methods, macrodynamics, and macroeconomic planning.

    • Unique volume examining inaugural Nobel Prize winner's Ragnar Frisch's abiding influence on economic theory and econometrics
    • Contributors include world-renowned economists: J. Hausman, R. Blundell, Z. Griliches, D. Jorgenson, J. Heckman, J. Laffont, G. Maddala, E. Malinvaud, and Nobel Laureate Lawrence Klein
    • Covers topics in both economic theory and policy

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Ragnar Frisch was perhaps the seminal figure in the transformation of economics into a quantitative science, equally at home in modern economic theory and in econometric methodology. A symposium to represent the breadth and depth of his interests faces a daunting task. This one meets the challenge fully, with a combination of expositions of Frisch's work and outstanding new work which show the current importance of Frisch's program." Kenneth J. Arrow, Stanford University
