This fall, John Leahy was elected as one of 51 new fellows to the Econometric Society, an international society for the advancement of economic theory and its relationship to statistics and mathematics. Leahy was nominated by his peers, and is only one of three fellows ever elected from the University of Michigan.
The Econometric Society was first convened in December 1930 in Cleveland, where the American Economic Association, the American Statistical Association and the American Mathematical Society were holding their annual meeting. The Society publishes three journals, Econometrica, Quantitative Economics, and Theoretical Economics, and a research Monograph Series. They also organize scientific meetings in six regions of the world.
