Advances in Robust and Flexible Inference in Econometrics : New Special Issue

  • Published Date: 10 June 2014

A Special Issue of The Econometrics Journal celebrating the work and contributions of Joel L. Horowitz has just been published. Most of these papers were presented at a Conference in Honour of Joel's 70th birthday held in June 2011 at University College London. Joel has made influential contributions to many areas in econometrics and statistics. These include bootstrap methods, semi-parametric and non-parametric estimation, specification testing, non-parametric instrumental variables, estimation of high-dimensional models, and functional data analysis, among others. The six papers that appear in this Special Issue are related to the topics of Joel's past and present research interests.
