Henry Schultz (1893-1938) was an American economist, statistician, and one of the founders of econometrics, led by his belief that economics needed rigorous quantitative study to become a science. His research was centred around a large programme dedicated to the theory and estimation of private demand for goods functions, a project which started in the early 1920s, during his time at the University of Chicago, and was completed shortly before his death with the publication of the present work.
