Work in Progress (selection)

Consistent estimation of Global VAR Models
In this paper, I propose an instrumental variable (IV) estimation procedure to estimate global VAR (GVAR) models and show that it leads to consistent and asymptotically normal estimates of the parameters. I also provide computationally simple conditions that guarantee that the GVAR model is stable. Finally, I illustrate the procedure using both real and artificial data and document the extent of the endogeneity bias that is present in the estimation procedure commonly utilized in the literature.
