To Juliette An Epilogue for a Valued Colleague and Dear Friend

Part of the Advanced Studies in Theoretical and Applied Econometrics book series (ASTA, volume 35)


The papers contained in this book represent a high level of scientific rigor that is appropriate given the man to which they are dedicated. Jean Paelinck is a gifted communicator with the language of mathematics, he is a brilliant econometrician and the father of something that is arguably more difficult than econometrics-spatial econometrics, and he is a thoughtful intellectual who understands the need to build bridges between scientific research and governmental and private-sector problem solving and decision making. Jean has spent much of his career moving effortlessly, or so it seems, between the twilight zone of basic research and the more immediate pressures of developmental research. He also has been a driving force in the founding of such specialized scientific fields as medicometry, oenometry, and restaurometry. Jean takes special pleasure in articulating new and innovative research agendas and in following the words of N. Boileau, who he is fond of quoting: “Ce qui se concoit bien s’énonce clairement et le mots pour le dire arrivent aisement”--if things are well conceived they can be clearly expressed and the words will come smoothly. This line, perhaps more than any other, expresses Jean’s rigor in style, expression, and thinking.
