By Laszlo Matyas

The generalized approach to moments (GMM) estimation has emerged over the last decade as delivering a able to use, versatile software of program to plenty of econometric and fiscal versions through counting on gentle, believable assumptions. The imperative target of this quantity, the 1st committed fullyyt to the GMM method, is to provide a whole and recent presentation of the idea of GMM estimation in addition to insights into using those tools in empirical reviews. it's also designed to function a unified framework for instructing estimation idea in econometrics. members to the amount comprise recognized professionals within the box established in North the United States, the UK/Europe, and Australia.
