The focus of this paper is on starting a critical discussion on the state of econometrics. The problem of information recovery in economics is discussed, and information theoretic methods are suggested as an estimation and inference framework for analyzing questions of a causal nature and learning about hidden dynamic micro and macro processes and systems, that may not be in equilibrium.
