Originally published in 1976 and with second edition published in 1984. This book established itself as the first genuinely introductory text on econometric methods, assuming no formal background on the part of the reader. The second edition maintains this distinctive feature. Fundamental concepts are carefully explained and, where possible, techniques are developed by verbal reasoning rather than formal proof. It provides all the material for a basic course. and is also ideal for a student working alone. Very little knowledge of maths and statistics is assumed, and the logic of statistical method is carefully stated. There are numerous exercises, designed to help the student assess individual progress. Methods are described with computer solutions in mind and the author shows how a variety of different calculations can be performed with relatively simple programs. This new edition also includes much new material - statistical tables are now included and their use carefully explained.

Ein wirtschaftswissenschaftliches Studium ist heutzutage ohne Mathematik (als Hilfswissenschaft) undenkbar, mathematische Beschreibungs- und Optimierungsmodelle beherrschen große Teile der ökonomischen Theorie und in zunehmendem Maße auch der ökonomischen Praxis. Mathematik in diesem Zusammenhang bedeutet einerseits das Problem, mathematische Ideen zu verstehen, um die dazugehörigen Techniken zu beherrschen und andererseits, diese zunächst abstrakten Techniken zielgerichtet und sinnvoll für ökonomische Anwendungen nutzbar zu machen. Das nun in der 10. Auflage vorliegende Buch als Lehr-, Arbeits- und Übungsbuch vorrangig zum Selbststudium konzipiert, versucht, beide Aspekte zu berücksichtigen durch ausführliche Darstellung, Begründung und Einübung mathematischer Grundelemente und ökonomisch relevanter mathematischer Techniken. Der Text wurde für die 10. Auflage abermals durchgesehen, in vielen Details verbessert und aktualisiert (Währungsumstellung, Rechtschreibreform etc.)

Economic Geography (Routledge Library Editions: Economic Geography)

This book introduces the reader to the many lines of thought in the literature on economic geography and ties these various aspects together within the concept of the economy. The book focusses on the dynamic and integrated nature of economies at different scales and levels of development. Emphasis is laid on the processes at work within economies. The authors discuss the concept of the economy, helping both to clarify the nature of economic activity and to reveal the importance and sources of economic power as the underlying means of control in economies. They also demonstrate that the operation of an economy and the distribution of economic power are critical influences on many other, apparently non-economic, aspects of human existence.

Regions in Recession and Resurgence (Routledge Library Editions: Economic Geography)

The world economy has undergone rapid evolution in recent decades, along with changes in the importance of industries and their organization, and sharp changes in the fortunes of regions. There are differences of opinion regarding the mainsprings of change and development and the role of goverments in fostering national output. In order to show the relvance of these changes to regional economies, the book focuses on the different schools of economic thought – from the neo-classical, through Keynesian to Marxist/radical ideas and monetarist/supply-side thinking – providing a brief description of their structure in non-spatial terms. The way these theories map into contrasting ideas regarding the mechanisms of regional economic growth is then explained. The book concentrates on developed economies and explicitly seeks to confront theory with fact, fact with theory. Bringing together non-spatial economic thery, regional growth theory and relevant empirical data, this book is intended for students in geography and regional economics but will also be of interest for those studying politics and government.

General Principles of Selection in Social Science and History

Social science is a social activity as well as a method of discovery. The researchers’ values and politics colour their work and so do their choices of scientific method. This book is about both – the technical effects of values and the political effects of technique. The author reports what social scientists and historians actually do. He sorts out the scientific from the political content in a wide range of old and new work in history, sociology, political science and economics. The overall work is a detailed political and technical criticism of the ‘scientistic’ programme which would have researchers select for such qualities as objectivity, uniformity, and generality, cumulation and professional unanimity.

An Introduction to Quantitative Economics

Author: Brian Haines

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1351140795

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 162

View: 3274

Originally published in 1978. This book is designed to enable students on main courses in economics to comprehend literature which employs econometric techniques as a method of analysis, to use econometric techniques themselves to test hypotheses about economic relationships and to understand some of the difficulties involved in interpreting results. While the book is mainly aimed at second-year undergraduates undertaking courses in applied economics, its scope is sufficiently wide to take in students at postgraduate level who have no background in econometrics - it integrates fully the mathematical and statistical techniques used in econometrics with micro- and macroeconomic case studies.

Econometrics (Routledge Revivals)

A Varying Coefficients Approach

Author: Baldev Raj,Aman Ullah

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1317850661

Originally published in 1981, this book considers one particular area of econometrics- the linear model- where significant recent advances have been made. It considers both single and multiequation models with varying co-efficients, explains the various theories and techniques connected with these and goes on to describe the various applications of the models. Whilst the detailed explanation of the models will interest primarily econometrics specialists, the implications of the advances outlined and the applications of the models will intrest a wide range of economists.

Applied Discrete-Choice Modelling

Originally published in 1981. Discrete-choice modelling is an area of econometrics where significant advances have been made at the research level. This book presents an overview of these advances, explaining the theory underlying the model, and explores its various applications. It shows how operational choice models can be used, and how they are particularly useful for a better understanding of consumer demand theory. It discusses particular problems connected with the model and its use, and reports on the authors’ own empirical research. This is a comprehensive survey of research developments in discrete choice modelling and its applications.

New Mathematical Advances in Economic Dynamics

Author: David F. Batten,Paul F. Lesse

Publisher: Routledge

Originally published in 1985. Mathematical methods and models to facilitate the understanding of the processes of economic dynamics and prediction were refined considerably over the period before this book was written. The field had grown; and many of the techniques involved became extremely complicated. Areas of particular interest include optimal control, non-linear models, game-theoretic approaches, demand analysis and time-series forecasting. This book presents a critical appraisal of developments and identifies potentially productive new directions for research. It synthesises work from mathematics, statistics and economics and includes a thorough analysis of the relationship between system understanding and predictability.
