Abstract

This working paper is the first draft of an overview and commentary on the papers to appear in a Macroeconomic Dynamics Special Issue on Measurement with Theory. The included papers in the special issue are part of a larger initiative to promote "measurement with theory" in economics and planned to appear as special issues of other journals. A later revised draft of this initial commentary is planned to appear as the introduction to the Macroeconomic Dynamics special issue, expected to appear in 2010.
