THE ECONOMETRIC SOCIETY ANNUAL REPORTS, 2008 REPORT OF THE PRESIDENT
1. THE SOCIETY AND ITS EXISTING PUBLICATIONS
THE SOCIETY IS THE LEADING LEARNED SOCIETY for economists in the world, and the world-wide coverage is becoming even more important as economic science expands in regions outside of its traditional strongholds in North America and Europe. It has been both a privilege and a pleasure to serve as the Society’s President in the year of 2008.
One of the Society’s major activities is to publish high-quality research so as to further the objective of supporting economics with a quantitative-theoretical and quantitative-empirical orientation. The flagship journal Econometrica continues to be very well managed thanks to the devoted work by the Editor, Stephen Morris, assisted in the Princeton editorial office by Mary Beth Bellando, as well as the efforts of the six Co-editors, and many Associate editors. The Society’s Monograph Series was effec- tively edited by Andrew Chesher and George Mailath. In 2008, the Society also took important steps towards adding two new journals to its publications—more about this in Section 4 below.
