Sargan Lecture

From 2019, The Econometrics Journal will sponsor and publish the Sargan Lecture at the Annual Conference of the Royal Economic Society. The Sargan Lecture commemorates the fundamental contributions to and profound influence on econometrics by (John) Denis Sargan. It does so by promoting econometric theory and methods with substantive direct or potential value in applications and their actual empirical application.

We are very pleased and honoured that James Heckman (Chicago) has agreed to give the first Sargan lecture under this new remit. James Heckman has deep knowledge of and affinity with the history of econometrics and has been putting state-of-the-art econometrics at the service of empirical economics for over four decades. He will both speak to the legacy of Denis Sargan and demonstrate the power of econometrics in advancing knowledge.

For many years, the Sargan Lecture has brought leading economists to the Annual Conference:
