Reviews

Jerry A. Hausman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Microeconometrics has had a big impact on economic policy and in people's lives, Jerry Hausman says, gathering and analyzing data on large numbers of people over significant periods of time, in such areas as consumer behavior and work life. The field can usefully pursue slippery questions of equilibrium, the push"pull of cause, effect and feedbacks among different economic variables. For instance, data describing the relation between individuals' education and their earnings can be fed into a regression model that demonstrates a powerful positive coefficient _ strong evidence of the "returns" to education. Hausman cites as well his research that persuaded cellphone companies they would profit more over time by subsidizing the price of phones and selling people long"term contracts.
