Econometric Theory and Methods provides a unified treatment of modern econometric theory and practical econometric methods. The geometrical approach to least squares is emphasized, as is the method of moments, which is used to motivate a wide variety of estimators and tests. Simulation methods, including the bootstrap, are introduced early and used extensively.
The book deals with a large number of modern topics. In addition to bootstrap and Monte Carlo tests, these include sandwich covariance matrix estimators, artificial regressions, estimating functions and the generalized method of moments, indirect inference, and kernel estimation. Every chapter incorporates numerous exercises, some theoretical, some empirical, and many involving simulation.
Econometric Theory and Methods is designed for beginning graduate courses. The book is suitable for both one- and two-term courses at the Masters or Ph.D. level. It can also be used in a final-year undergraduate course for students with sufficient backgrounds in mathematics and statistics.

FEATURES
·Unified Approach: New concepts are linked to old ones whenever possible, and the notation is consistent both within and across chapters wherever possible.
·Geometry of Ordinary Least Squares: Introduced in Chapter 2, this method provides students with valuable intuition and allows them to avoid a substantial amount of tedious algebra later in the text.
·Modern Concepts Introduced Early: These include the bootstrap (Chapter 4), sandwich covariance matrices (Chapter 5), and artificial regressions (Chapter 6).
·Inclusive Treatment of Mathematics: Mathematical and statistical concepts are introduced as they are needed, rather than isolated in appendices or introductory chapters not linked to the main body of the text.
·Advanced Topics: Among these are models for duration and count data, estimating equations, the method of simulated moments, methods for unbalanced panel data, a variety of unit root and cointegration tests, conditional moment tests, nonnested hypothesis tests, kernel density regression, and kernel regression.
·Chapter Exercises: Every chapter offers numerous exercises, all of which have been answered by the authors in the Instructor's Manual. Particularly challenging exercises are starred and their solutions are available at the authors' website, providing a way for instructors and interested students to cover advanced material.

He is a Fellow of the Econometric Society and of the Royal Society of Canada and a past President of the Canadian Economics Association (2001-2002).

Review:

"This is a first class book, modern in conception and flawless in execution. The coverage is superb and it does things that many other books do not do or do not do adequately."--Richard E Quandt, Princeton University

"An excellent book that stands on its own in terms of approach."--Thanasis Stengos, University of Guelph, Canada

"This book teaches the core of econometric theory...with all of the fluency and didactic elegance that we have come to expect of its two authors....One of the book's outstanding features is its carefully constructed exercises which serve to reaffirm the concepts expounded it is chapters. The
book has an elegant architecture, and it has been written with close attention to detail. In comparison, most other books that have a similar purpose look like mere agglomerations of econometric building materials. This is the best textbook of econometric theory to have emerged in a long while; and
it deserves to find a place on the bookshelf of every instructor. It is bound to find favour with the students."--D.S.G. Pollock, University of London, UK
