First published in 1997, this volume responded to a current national concern with quality control. Part 1 addresses issues including the US trade deficit, international lending to Brazil and the traditional theory of international finance. Part 2 explores topics such as the history of statistics in the West and former East and the haphazard axiomatic methodological basis of traditional econometrics. Finally, part 3 consists of 7 papers on applied economics and finance, including predicting the success of takeover bids and an examination of the economic determinants of juvenile crime in New York City.
