Show Summary Details


This chapter presents a luncheon address at the conference by Jack E. Triplett. Triplett reviews the measurement problems on which Griliches worked; those on which he did not work directly but on which he had a significant influence; and those that will likely continue to be important in the future. He also discusses in greater detail Griliches's interactions with government economists and statisticians in the various statistical agencies. Triplett emphasizes that Griliches's impact on measurement and his leadership in the measurement community as a whole extended far beyond his immediate research, influencing his many students and colleagues (and their students and colleagues).
