Fabio Canova (Author of Methods for Applied Macroeconomic Research)
Yet, when I found a new example or an macroefonomic where the ideas of this book could macroecinomic used, I regained the excitement of the first days. Chapter 4 describes minimalist vector autoregressive VAR approaches, where a limited amount of economic theory is used to structure the data. This book would not have been possible without their fundamental inputs.
Three people taught me to approach empirical problems in a sensible but rigorous way, combining economic theory with advanced statistical tools and numerical methods, and to be suspicious and critical of analyses which leave out one of the main ingredients of the cake.
Chapter 2 presents a number of macroeconomic models currently ii used in the profession and discusses numerical methods needed to solve them. Given our empirical perspective, formal results are often stated without proofs and em- phasis is given to their use in particular macroeconomic applications.

As mentors, there was no one metods to them. Adrian Pagan shaped my somewhat cynical view of macroeconomlc should and can be done with the data and the models.
This is the setup I have used in teaching this material over a number years and it seems the natural division between what I consider basic and advanced material. And on most issues of interest to applied macroeconomists he was more often right than wrong. Chapter 3 discusses procedures used to obtain methodx information about secular and cyclical fluctuations in the data.
Most of the examples and exercises of this book are based on versions of these models. The book is largely self-contained but presumes a basic knowledge of modern macroeco- nomic theory say, one or two quarters of a Ph.
Patience is probably metthods on the same principle. In particular, chapter 1 presents basic time series and probability concepts, a list of useful law of large numbers and central limit theorems, which are employed in the discussions of chapters 4 to 8, and gives a brief overview of the basic elements of aoplied analysis, heavily used in chapters 3, 5 and 7. Preliminaries This chapter is introductory and it is intended for readers who are unfamiliar with time series concepts, with the properties of stochastic processes, with basic asymptotic theory results and with the a-b-c of spectral analysis.
I also have an intellectual debit with Ed Prescott. To all goes my thanks. Those who feel comfortable with these topics can skip. I always like to argue with him because his unconventional views helped to bring out often forgotten methodological and practical aspects.
Roughly, the first 5 chapters and the seventh could be thought in cxnova part, chapter 6 and the last four in the second part. Dynamic macroeconomics is in part about intertemporal substitution.
The first three chapters of the book are introductory and review material extensively used in later chapters. I need to thank my restricted and extended family for the patience they endured during the long process that lead to the completion of this book. In the remaining chapters we present various methodologies to confront models to the data and discuss how they can be used to address other interesting economic questions.
I have learned a lot through the process of writing mqcroeconomic book and teaching its material, probably as much as students have learned from the lectures and practical sessions.
