Sir Clive Granger, one of our distinguished Advisory Editors, at the age of 74, passed away on 27 May 2009. This occurrence brings much sadness to the global community of economists and statisticians. He was a pioneer in econometrics and statistics during the latter half of 20th and the early years of 21th centuries. He shared the Nobel Prize for economics in 2003 for his contributions on the concept of co-integration.

Aim and Scope
