IBS Hyderabad conducts 6th International Conference on Applied Econometrics

IBS, Mumbai

7th July 2018, Hyderabad: The 6th International Conference on Applied Econometrics was organized by IBS Hyderabad in collaboration with The Indian Econometric Society (TIES) on July 5-6, 2018. The conference was inaugurated by Dr. C Rangarajan, former chairman of Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister, and former Governor of Reserve Bank of India.

In his inaugural address, Dr. Rangarajan, Chancellor of the ICFAI Foundation for Higher Education, Hyderabad, a deemed-to-be University, highlighted the relevance of econometrics as an applied discipline, to governments & businesses. Describing it as a confluence of mathematics, economics & statistics, he traced its rapid progress since the World War - II owing to the challenges of economic policy. Theoretical postulates, according to him, gain universal acceptance only after their empirical validation, which is provided by econometric research. He explained that divergence of views about economic policy is attributable to differences in value-judgments, & therefore not a weakness of the science of economics, which is based on logical premises & methodologies.
