Show Summary Details


The ‘time‐series’ approach to econometrics is critically evaluated, and analytical test power response surfaces presented. Non‐stationarity, differencing and ‘error‐correction’ models (though not yet named) are discussed. Residual autocorrelation is reinterpreted using Sargan's common factor approach, and embryonic ideas presented on how to explain competing models’ findings to reduce the proliferation of conflicting results. Finally, the respective roles of criticism and construction are considered.

Keywords: common factor; conflicting results; construction; criticism; differencing; non‐stationarity; residual autocorrelation; test power response surfacestime series
