I'm an economist by training. I've used LaTeX for more than 20 years, ever since I wrote my Ph.D. dissertation with an early version of LaTeX. I continue to use LaTeX for my working papers, journal articles, and some of my other professional publications.

I am the principal author of the selnolig package, which lets users automatically suppress typographic ligatures that are inappropriate because they span morpheme boundaries, for both English and German language texts.

I once edited an entire conference proceedings volume in LaTeX. At the organization prior to the one I work for now, I wrote a LaTeX package to implement the style and layout requirements the organization had come up with for working papers written by its professional staff. This package (i) helped up free up much of the authors' time that was otherwise wasted on figuring out how to implement the guidelines in LaTeX -- the guidelines had been written primarily with users of MS Word -- and (ii) actually convinced some of our economists to make the switch from MS Word to LaTeX when writing their working papers.


Welcome to TeX.SE!

A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, then they are marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it).

I've just been asked to write a minimal example. What's that?

comment Mixing cleveref, vref and ref: Argument of \@firstoftwo has an extra }
The LaTeX warning message you're getting should tip you off as to what's going on: Since you don't provide a \label{Foo} statement anywhere in the MWE, LaTeX cannot resolve the \ref{Foo} statement and hence issues a warning message. Provide the directive \label{Foo} after \chapter{Foo} and your MWE compiles flawlessly. (By the way, the answer to your posting in TeXWelt already informed you that you must provide \label statements so that cross-references can be resolved.)

comment Changing the order of TOC entries
I think you should (in case you haven't already done so) upvote and accept @Werner's answer. His solution is more flexible and doesn't require you to hand-edit the .toc file or have to remember to disable \@starttoc.

comment equal column spacing in longtable
@Franz - You can make such a note a part of \endlastfoot, right? E.g., \midrule \multicolumn{8}{l}}\textit{t}-statistics in parentheses}\\ \endlastfoot.

comment How to center an unnumbered section name?
A comment up front: It may look very weird if unnumbered section headers are centered but numbered sections are not. To center-set both numbered and unnumbered section headers, you could load the sectsty package and issue the directive \sectionfont{\centering}.

comment How to fit the table into landscape mode
@ritesh - Mentioning that you use a package named xthesis and employ various "other definitions" (which ones?!) ought to be done up front, in your MWE, rather than after the fact in a comment to an answer.

comment phantom wrapper of a word around a shorter one
How should the second argument be placed within the "box" with width given by the first argument: flush-left, centered, or flush-right? What should be done if the "box" defined by the first argument is too long for the available space (say, the current line)?
