Moshe Buchinsky was recently named a 2020 Econometric Society Fellow. The Econometric Society is one of the most prestigious learned society in the field of economics, with a world-wide membership. Its main object is to promote studies that aim at a unification of the theoretical and empirical approach to economic problems and that are penetrated by constructive and rigorous thinking similar to that which has come to dominate in the natural sciences. It operates as a purely scientific organization, without any political, social, financial or nationalistic allegiance or bias. The society is run by the Fellows who choose the constitution and elect the leadership. In turn, the leadership runs the journals of the society (Econometrica, Theoretical Economics, Quantitative Economics), and a series of conferences around the world. There are currently around 700 Fellows across the globe.
