For example, over the last half decade many inflation rates in industrialized countries have been sufficiently persistent not to be rejected as I 1 by unit root testing. Identification of Common Trends The guiding principle is that good econometric work should take econometrics, institutions, and economics seriously. The I 2 Model The I 2 model has a very rich structure but is algebraically more complex than the I 1 model, albeit the basic ideas are similar.

Econometric Theory23 As the name suggests, the asymptotic tables are valid for large samples. The latter had been widely used since the seminal paper by Dennis Sargan in by his followers at the London School of Economics, in particular David Hendry. Economic forecasting in a changing world. Linking Theory With Empirical Evidence: Inference on co-integration parameters in heteroskedastic vector autoregressions.

The mathematical concept of cointegration turned out to be of immense importance for time series econometrics as it contained the key to handling nonstationarity in economic time series.

In all of the above cases, the scenario analysis was able to uncover features in the data that were inconsistent with or absent in the proposed theoretical model, thereby suggesting how to modify the model in an empirically relevant way.


Econometrics5 2 She has been the leader of numerous research projects, and has been on the editorial boards of the International Journal of Forecasting, the Journal of Business and Economic Statistics, and is presently serving the Journal of Economic Methodology.

The Cointegrated VAR Model A major advantage of the CVAR type of model contra standard regression models is that it allows a separation between short-run and long-run effects by combining differenced variables with cointegration among them. For this reason, Johansen ab has derived so-called Bartlett corrections for the trace test that give a correct size. The latter is defined as the cumulation of all permanent shocks that have pushed the variables out of equilibrium. Otherwise it would imply quadratic deterministic trends in prices and such high predictability is not plausible.

The Curse of Dimensionality Identification of the CVAR model is often challenging but still feasible as long as the dimension of the system is not too big.

For example, asset prices tend to have cointtegrated tails as well as heteroscedastic errors and are therefore inherently non-normal. A theory-consistent CVAR scenario: Recognizing the limits to knowability.

Examples are interest rates, real exchange rates, stock returns, etc. Change and expectations in macroeconomic models: The financial crisis and the systemic failure of the economics profession. If the graph of a supposedly stationary cointegration relation reveals distinctly nonstationary behavior, one should reconsider the choice of ror find out if the model specification is in fact incorrect.

The I 2 Model: Deterministic Components in the I 1 Model 7. The way forward for macroeconomics pp. A CVAR Scenario How to link a theoretical model with empirical evidence in a scientifically valid way is a tremendously difficult task that has been much debated juswlius long as economics have existed.

John Wiley, Find this resource: A small sample correction for tests of hypotheses on the cointegrating vectors.

The Cointegrated VAR Model

In contrast to standard economic models, the CVAR does not distinguish between endogenous and exogenous variables: The long swings puzzle. The second term describes the short-run dynamic effects of transitory changes in the system.

Hence, a successful CVAR analysis has to address a large number of issues typical of most economic data: Bootstrap determination of the co-integration rank in heteroskedastic VAR models. In particular, the author focuses on the properties of the cointegrated VAR model and its implications for macroeconomic inference when data are non-stationary.
