The Philosophy of Econometrics: An Introduction

by Willem van der Deijl

This text aims to train the reader in critical statistical reasoning. We do this through taking a closer look at the methods and philosophy behind our everyday econometric practices. By the end of this book, you will have a better understanding of why statistical methods are the way they are, but also what their limitations are, and how we should think critically about the lessons that they can teach us.
