Hello Minimus,
from my experience if you are just a front-end user of econometrics models 
maybe softward package created ad-hoc may be more efficient than Mathematica, 
but if you are a model structurer or a quant I think that the symbolic features 
of Mathematica may be a very good advantage to validate and test your models
