The Econometric Game, 2018

Readers of this blog will be familiar with The Econometric Game. You'll find my posts about the 2016 and 2017 Games here, and here the first of those posts links to ones about the Games from previous years.

The Econometric Game is a competition between teams of graduate students in econometrics. It's organised by the study association for Actuarial Science, Econometrics & Operational Research (VSAE) of the University of Amsterdam, and it has been a terrific success.

The Econometric Game has been held annually since 1999. This year, 30 teams have been chosen to compete in the Games, which will be held in Amsterdam from 11 to 13 of April. The theme for this year's competition is "Econometrics of Happiness".

The winners in both 2016 and 2017 were teams representing Harvard University. Let's see how they perform this year. I'll have some follow-up posts once the Game gets underway next month.
