Hot Topics in Econometrics

Last week, Takamitsu Kurita asked me "What do you think will be the big developments in Econometrics over the next decade". We were having a drink following his seminar, and I really didn't have a good answer. I think those of us present ducked the question by saying that, as econometricians, we know only too well the pitfalls associated with forecasting! But Taka's question was a good one, and it certainly deserved a better response than I had at the time.
