More About the Author

Edward Leamer is the Chauncey J. Medberry Professor of Management, Professor of Economics, Professor of Statistics, Director of the UCLA/Anderson Business Forecast Project and Chief Economist of the Ceridian-UCLA Pulse of Commerce Index. (

Never drawn to the fads of the mainstream, Ed Leamer is known both for his creative thoughts and his engaging style of writing. Specification Searches makes the case that traditional statistical theory is helpful for studying experimental data but either misleading or nearly irrelevant for studying nonexperimental data. Macroeconomic Patterns and Stories is an engaging look at macroeconomic data built on the premise that "Economists are pattern-seeking, story-telling animals." In his most recent book, The Craft of Economics, Leamer argues that economists are using mostly formal thinking and formal data analyses, and would do better work if they included informal approaches as well.
