The A. R. Bergstrom Prize in Econometrics, 2015

A. R. (Rex) Bergstrom can reasonably be regarded as the "father" of modern econometrics in New Zealand. He made seminal contributions to continuous-time econometrics and the finite-sample properties of simultaneous equations estimators. He also taught and inspired a generation of young econometricians.

Rex's contributions are recognized by a biennial award, named in his honour. Applications and nominations for the 11th A. R. Bergstrom Prize are now being solicited:
