Synopses & Reviews
This book assembles key texts in the theory and applications of the Structural Econometric Time Series Analysis (SEMTSA) approach. The theory and applications of these procedures to a variety of econometric modeling and forecasting problems as well as Bayesian and non-Bayesian testing, shrinkage estimation and forecasting procedures are presented and applied. Finally, attention is focused on the effects of disaggregation on forecasting precision.
Synopsis
Offers key texts in the theory and application of the Structural Econometric Time Series Analysis (SEMTSA) approach.
Synopsis
Bringing together a collection of previously published work, this book provides a timely discussion of major considerations relating to the construction of econometric models that work well to explain economic phenomena, predict future outcomes and be useful for policy-making. Importantly, many chapters show how SEMTSA modeling procedures have been applied to solve practical forecasting and other problems. The discussions of alternative approaches to model building, including an analysis of the use and development of the new Marshallian Macroeconomic Model, will prove invaluable to professionals, academics and students alike.
