I think you should install the bundle of recommanded packages, which
includes e.g. MASS (functions from Venables & Ripley book), modreg (various
non-parametric methods), survival (which is not well suited for
econometrics).  Foreign allows data conversation between various formats
(like SPSS and stata), I think it is included in recommended).  If you are
working with latex, xtable may be of interest.

I think these are the packages which I am using, but I am rather a
microeconometrics guy.
