An introduction to modern Bayesian econometrics. Back cover copy About two hundred and forty years ago, an English clergyman namedThomas Bayes developed a method to calculate the chances ofuncertain events in the light of accumulating evidence. Using clear explanations and practical illustrations and problems, the text presents innovative, computer-intensive ways for applied economists to lancastter the Bayesian method.

My aim has been to answer two rather simple questions.

Using clear explanations and practicalillustrations and problems, the text presents innovative, computer-intensive ways for applied economists to use the Bayesianmethod. The book has developed out of teaching econometrics at Lancaater University where the typical member of the class is a graduate student, in his second year or higher. An Introduction to Mod I have used it as such on several occasions with a teaching style that emphasizes calculations; the practicality of Bayesian methods; and demonstrates sampling algorithms including use of markov chain monte carlo procedures in class and requires students to solve problems numerically.

Description In this new and expanding area, Tony Lancaster’s text is the first comprehensive introduction to the Bayesian way of doing applied economics. Bayesian statistical decision theory. 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. 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.
