Dutch economist Jan Tinbergen is widely considered to be one of the most influential economists of the 20th century and one of the founding fathers of econometrics. He was awarded the first Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 1969, which he shared with Ragnar Frisch for having developed and applied dynamic models for the analysis of economic processes. Presented in a non-mathematical language suitable for the layperson, The Dynamics of Business Cycles presents Tinbergen's analysis of economic dynamics, or the relations between fluctuating economic magnitudes important in the study of the endogenous movements of national natural, technical, and institutional cycles.
