to analyze and test economic relationships. Theoretical econometrics considers questions about the statistical properties of estimators and tests, while applied econometrics is concerned with the application of econometric methods to assess economic theories. Although the first known use of the term "econometrics" was by Paweł Ciompa in 1910, Ragnar Frisch is given credit for coining the term in the sense that it is used today. 1 While many econometric methods represent applications of standard statistical models , there are some special features of economic data that distinguish econometrics from other branches of ...

Speech: Importance of Financial Econometrics for Financial ...
I am pleased and flattered to have been invited to speak to you today at your inaugural conference. Academic work, both theoretical and empirical, in financial econometrics has had a tremendous impact on the form and structure of modern global financial markets. It has promoted both innovation and growth in an industry that is critical to the efficient allocation of capital and risk. Yet recent events have raised a number of questions about the stability and robustness of these complex markets and the role played by financial innovation. A more thorough understanding of such issues is important not only for researchers ... market research, surveys and trends
Further reflections on Alchemists of Loss » The Cobden Centre
.  Now I seek to explore the errors of Modern Financial Theory in more detail and provide some insights based on an understanding of entrepreneurship that is missed by the authors.  I hope this will add to the impressive firepower mustered by Dowd and Hutchinson, and allow us debunk the myths of the Alchemists once and for all. The Alchemists’ ideas, like those of Keynes, have zombie-like quality; they return, undead, like something from a cheap cult Hammer House of Horror movie. I aim to provide another stake to impale them with.  The Great Austrian economist Dr Frank Shostak will also be deployed, as he placed an ... market research, surveys and trends

John Hussman: Betting on a Bubble, Bracing for a Fall
Over the short-term, my impression is that the technicals may hold sway for a bit. The economic data points simply do not come out every day, and to the extent that economic news is not perfectly uniform in its implications, the eagerness of investors to speculate can easily dominate briefly. We established enough contingent call options at lower levels that we've now got about 1% of assets in roughly at-the-money index calls - a modest "anti-hedge" that removes any concern we might have about a frantic short-squeeze if the S&P 500 moves materially above 1100. At the same time, the historical evidence suggests that ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Following the May 28, 2010 approval and issuance of the jointly submitted final pretrial order ("FPTO") in this action, each side has deluged this Court with a host of motions in limine.

Households who wish to extract home equity through refinancing their mortgage face a hidden transaction cost. The real value of the fixed nominal mortgage payment declines over time with inflation. The change in the real value of the mortgage payments from taking on a new mortgage is positive and an increasing function of inflation; higher inflation thus discourages households from re-balancing their portfolio as frequently as they would otherwise. The life cycle model developed in this paper demonstrates how the share of total wealth held in housing is sensitive to the rate of inflation, even when perfectly anticipated. ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
