Vintage Years in Econometrics: The 1940's

A Fathers' Day "thank you" to our founding fathers..........

Following on from my earlier post about vintage years for econometrics in the 1930's, here's my take on the 1940's. This is a more challenging decade to assess, given the explosion of major contributions in the second decade of life for the new discipline.

As before, let me note that "in econometrics, what constitutes quality and importance is partly a matter of taste - just like wine! So, not all of you will agree with the choices I've made in the following compilation."

I've added a few "tasting notes" here and there, if I thought they were warranted.
