Ragnar Frisch (1895–1973) played a major role in the foundation of econometrics as a discipline. Joint winner with Jan Tinbergen of the first Nobel prize in economics, he exerted a strong influence both on its development in the 1930s and, as editor of Econometrica for more than twenty years, its subsequent growth following the Second World War.
