Contemporary Bayesian Econometrics and Statistics by John Geweke pdf free download. Bayesian analysis provides a unified and coherent way of thinking about decision problems and how to solve them using data and other information. The goal of this book is to acquaint the reader in a serious way with this approach and its problemsolving potential, and to this end it has two objectives. The first is to provide a clear understanding of Bayesian analysis, grounded in the theory of inference and optimal decisionmaking, which will enable the reader to confidently analyze real problems.

The second is to equip the reader with state-of-the-art simulation methods that can be used to solve these problems. This book is written for research professionals who use econometrics and similar statistical methods in their work, and for Ph.D. students in disciplines that do the same. These disciplines include economics and statistics, as well as the many social sciences and fields in business and public policy schools that study decisionmaking on the basis of data and other information. The book assumes the same knowledge of mathematical statistics as most Ph.D. courses in econometrics, and familiarity with linear models at the level of a graduate applied econometrics course or a master’s statistics course.

The entire book was developed through a decade of teaching at this level, all of the material having been presented at least twice
and some more than a half-dozen times. This vetting process has afforded the opportunity to minimize the barriers to entry to a sound and practical grasp of Bayesian analysis for the intended audience. Loosely speaking, the first three chapters address the objective of a clear understanding of Bayesian analysis—how to think—and the next five, the objective of presenting and applying simulation methods—how to act. There is no sharp distinction between these two objectives.

In particular, as one gains greater confidence with “hands on” methods, it is natural to rethink the formulation of problems at hand with the knowledge that what was not long ago impossible is now practical. The text has many examples and exercises that follow this path, ranging from questions that have been used in examinations to substantial projects that extend or apply the methods presented. Some of these examples and exercises use the Bayesian analysis, computation, and communication (BACC) extension of the mathematical applications Matlab, Splus, R, and Gauss.

The reader will find the software and documentation, along with data and code for examples, in the online appendix for this text at https://www.biz.uiowa.edu/cbes. The book takes up specific models as vehicles for understanding Bayesian analysis and applying simulation methods. This entails solving problems in a practical way and at the level of detail required by research professionals whose work must
withstand subsequent scrutiny. In some cases these solutions did not exist only a few years ago (prior to 2005), and are not yet widely known among econometricians and statisticians.

Therefore the book concentrates on a handful of models in some depth, rather than attempting to survey all models with a scope similar to that of leading (and much longer) graduate econometrics texts. The coverage here should not be taken as a judgment that other models are somehow less important or significant, or cannot be approached using Bayesian analysis. Just the opposite is true. The approaches and methods in this book are being used to improve models and decisionmaking at an accelerating rate, as perusal of the tables of contents of leading journals such as the Journal of the American Statistical Association, the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, and the Journal of Econometrics will verify. The reader of this book will be well equipped to understand this research, to appreciate its relevance to problems at hand, and to tailor existing methods to these problems.
