Hitchhiker’s Guide to Econometrics

Princeton University Press just sent me Joshua Angrist and Jorn-Steffen Pischke’s new book, Mostly Harmless Econometrics. I haven’t had a chance to read it yet but any econometrics book with a clear Douglas Adams reference will get my attention.


Flicking through it, it looks remarkably readable but it is no Super Crunchers for accessibility. It is has plenty of equations complete with matrix notation and all. But for those with upper level under-graduate or post-graduate training in economics, I suspect it will be a very popular overview indeed. Lots of great practical examples throughout.

  1. Thank you for a pointer to a book that does indeed look interesting.

    Without wanting to criticise, I can’t help wishing that you had got the title spelled correctly, provided a link and perhaps actually read the book.
