The New Palgrave Economics Collection
Following the publication of the award-winning and much-acclaimed The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics, Second Edition, which brings together Nobel Prize winners and the brightest young scholars to survey the discipline, a new series of reference books is now available. Each title in The New Palgrave Economics Collection is comprised of articles from the Dictionary and covers a fundamental theme within economics. All of the articles have been specially chosen by the editors of the Dictionary, Steven N. Durlauf and Lawrence E. Blume, and are written by leading practitioners in the field.
Microeconometrics has been one of the most successful areas in modern economic research, developing a host of tools that are essential both in uncovering the determinants of individual behaviour and in the evaluation of public policy. This collection includes both classic and new entries by James Heckman that exemplify the evolution of the field.
