[Free ebook]Introductory Econometrics: Using Monte Carlo Simulation with Microsoft Excel-Humberto Barreto



Product description

This highly accessible and innovative text (and accompanying website: www.wabash.edu/econometrics) uses Excel (R) workbooks powered by Visual Basic macros to teach the core concepts of econometrics without advanced mathematics. It enables students to run monte Carlo simulations in which they repeatedly sample from artificial data sets in order to understand the data generating process and sampling distribution. Coverage includes omitted variables, binary response models, basic time series, and simultaneous equations. The authors teach students how to construct their own real-world data sets drawn from the internet, which they can analyze with Excel (R) or with other econometric software.


"Barreto and Howland have taken a truly innovative approach to teach undergraduate econometrics, using computer simulation methods to illustrate and clarify difficult topics. Fully integrated with Microsoft Excel, this textbook forces students to take a hands-on approach to the subject. There is no better way to learn econometrics than by doing econometrics!"
Jason Abrevaya, Purdue University

"Barreto and Howland have done an excellent job of producing an introductory econometric textbook based on Excel software combined with a well written and applied intuitive approach to econometrics. In my opinion, their teaching philosophy is absolutely the correct method: Put the student in front of a computer and teach econometrics by doing econometrics"
Daniel V. Gordon, University of Calgary

"Humberto and Barreto have written a worthwhile and unique textbook on introductory econometrics. I was initially skeptical that Excel and Monte Carlo simulation could be integrated coherently, but the authors execute it well. This book has many positives, including accessibility, potential to engage some students who otherwise might not be interested and likelihood of students finishing with a strong understanding of sampling distributions and linear regression...instructors should consider this progressive textbook for their undergraduate econometrics course."
Ryan E. Wiegand, Journal of the American Statistical Association

Book Description

This introductory econometrics book is radically different from its competitors. Where other texts are filled with formulas and jargon, packed with a great deal of advanced material and require advanced mathematics, its fundamental strategy is to use clear language and take advantage of recent developments in computers to create concrete, visual explanations of difficult, abstract ideas.

About the Author

Humberto Barreto is DeVore Professor of Economics at Wabash College, Indiana. He received his Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Professor Barreto has lectured often on teaching economics with computer-based methods, including the National Science Foundation's Chautuqua program for short courses using simulation. He has received the Indiana Sears Roebuck Teaching Award and the Wabash College McLain-McTurnan Arnold Award for Teaching Excellence. The author of The Entrepreneur in Microeconomic Theory, Professor Barreto has served as a Fulbright Scholar in the Dominican Republic. He is the manager of electronic information for the History of Economics Society and the director of the opportunities to Learn about Business program at Wabash College.

Frank M. Howland is Associate Professor of Economics at Wabash College. He earned his PhD in Economics from Stanford University. Professor Howland was a visiting researcher at FEDEA on Madrid in 1995-6. His academic research focuses on college savings plans.
