That's a broad subject area, it would be a pretty big package. My
small part of it (the "dse" and "dseplus" bundles on CRAN) is
already already divided into many packages. You should also look
at "ts", "tseries",  and "strucchange". These are mostly about
time series and not other areas of econometrics. Also, as far as
I know, there is nothing that does structural modelling of time
series as is popular in some econometrics circles, although dse
has a (broken) interface to software that does that.
