Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521778255, Paperback)

In these three essays, Professor Granger explains the process of constructing and evaluating an empirical model. Drawing on a wide range of cases and vignettes from economics, finance, politics and environment economics, as well as from art, literature, and the entertainment industry, Professor Granger combines rigor with intuition to provide a unique and entertaining insight into one of the most important subjects in modern economics.

In Chapter 3, the question of how to evaluate forecasts is considered at several levels of increasing depth.
