Abstract

From the reading of the article titled “In Praise of Structural Macroeconometrics“, there are some concerns about the role of econometric techniques that should be discussed. First idea is related to the “scientifi c” characteristics of the Econometrics, second one deals with the old debate between the prevalence of the statistical information or the underlying theory in econometric modeling, and fi nally we present some arguments about the role of the prevailing methodology, represented by the Cowles Commission, in the development of the econometric discipline. En el presente artículo se recogen una serie de refl exiones inducidas por la lectura del artículo "En defensa de la macroeconometría estructural" y que están relacionadas con las características “científi cas” de la econometría, el debate entre la prevalencia de la información estadística o la teoría subyacente en la modelización econométrica y sobre el papel de la metodología imperante, representada por la Cowles Commision, en el desarrollo de la disciplina econométrica.
