Dynamic Disequilibrium Modeling presents some recent surveys and developments in dynamic disequilibrium and continuous time econometric modeling along with related research from associated fields. Specific areas covered include applications in business cycles and growth, tests for nonlinearity, rationing and disequilibrium dynamics, and demographic and international applications. The contents of this volume comprise the proceedings of the ninth conference in the International Symposia in Economic Theory and Econometrics series under the general editorship of William Barnett.
