SNDE Interview

Bruce Mizrach prepared some very thoughtful questions for an interview at the Society for Nonlinear Dynamics and Econometrics Symposium in San Francisco two months ago. We discussed a broad range of topics, including my background, Markov-switching models, the Fed, oil prices, and why I blog. Below are links you can follow to see the answers to particular questions.

The background for the interview and details of the questions can be found in a nice write-up by Bruce Mizrach that appeared in the latest issue of Studies in Nonlinear Dynamics and Econometrics. Here are abbreviated versions of the questions with links to the relevant video. Thanks much to Bruce for preparing this and helping make it accessible to all our readers.

One thought on “SNDE Interview

    I enjoyed the snippets that I watched, Professor, especially your thoughts on the liquidity crisis. I agree, that we should have a public discussion on this. I did not get to watch the Congressional hearings one month ago or so, but I do not sense that they were particularly penetrating.
    It is going to be an interesting summer and fall.
