A Nobel Prize winner in economic science and a notable personality, Sir Clive Granger will be best remembered as someone who completely transformed the concepts of macroeconomics. He developed techniques to analyze time series data with common trends and penned some groundbreaking books on time series analysis and forecasting, applied statistics and statistical theory. His writings include all the major developments in economics, which occurred during his lifetime. The world owes him for developing some of the most exciting ideas in economic and financial information. His research on the aspects of forecasting had such a lasting and deep influence on economists, so much so that it has become virtually impossible to work on time series economics without using his methods or without being influenced by his concepts. Many financial organisations in England who are into forecasting and monitoring the U.K economy have heavily used Clive Granger’s ideas and concepts. These concepts have been propagated by his students and passed over to recent generations of economists. Know all about Clive W.J. Granger life and living in this biography.
