'Ragnar Frisch was a pioneer of 'econometrics', a name which he himself coined, that union of mathematical and statistical methods applied to the testing of economic hypotheses which, he firmly believed, would at long last establish economics as a science. He founded the Econometric Society in 1930, edited Econometrica from 1933-5, and was awarded the first Nobel Prize in Economics in 1969, jointly with Jan Tinbergen for his services to econometric modelling and measurement' (Blaug, Great Economists Since Keynes).
