Stupid question, really! I forgot that, of course, FE models models the
time series whilst 'averaging out' the cross-sectional variation, which
-areg- does not. I knew that: honest!
Still, the quandary of whether or not robust standard errors under FE is
possible remains. I notice that FE is the only model (FGLS and -areg-
included) that reports sensible constant values for my data, which is a
plus for me.
