This book is about the Bayesian approach to inference; it is not a book about comparative methods and it contains little about traditional approaches which are covered in many textbooks. Regression with Autocorrelated Errors.
Though hismethod has extensive applications to the work of economists, it isonly recent advances in computing that have made it baydsian toexploit its full power.
Nielsen Book Data Publisher’s Summary About two hundred and forty years ago, an English clergyman named Thomas Bayes developed a method to calculate the chances of uncertain events in the light of accumulating evidence. It works through the implications for econometric practice using practical examples and accessible computer software.

Though his method has extensive applications to the work of economists, it is only recent advances in computing that have made it possible to exploit its full power.
My aim has been to answer two rather simple questions.
The book could be used as the basis for a one semester course at economettics or advanced undergraduate level.

Some Time Series Models. These illustrations are not comprehensive, indeed, for an imaginary reader who gets the point of the opening chapters, they are unnecessary!
Randomized, Controlled and Observational Data. I also provide a brief answer to the second question, namely that to apply this theorem in an econometric investigation the best method, in general, is to use our new computer power to sample from the probability distributions that the theorem requires us to calculate.
It could, therefore, be studied by upper level undergraduates, particularly in Europe and other countries with European style undergraduate programs. A Second O Stochastic Volatility.

The reader could then choose among the remaining chapters, which are illustrations of the use of Bayesian methods in particular areas of application, according to his or her interests.
