st: WG: Strict exogeneity and xtivreg2
I am using lags of an endogenous variable in a macro panel
setting, because I think of it as predetermined.
So I use xtivreg2 and have something like:
xtivreg2 employment = (capital wages = l1.capital l1.wages),
fe robust (with some more instrumented variables), altogether
When I think of my right hand side variables as
predetermined, past values of them are not influenced by
employment_t. But, current and past values are not strictly
exogenous, and hence endogenous in case of the fe-Estimator
1. Is xtivreg2 with the fe option robust to this problem, as e.g. the
predetermined option in xtabond (wich uses first differences of the dependent var.)? Oder do I also need strict
exogeneity of the instruments? (I only found a very general answer to a less specific question in the faq-list up to now)
2. Why is it, if point 1. should be no problem, that in the xtivreg2.help in the case of the
fe-option, they use only l2.n and l3., but not l1.n and l2.n as
in the case of the fd option?
Kind regards and thanx for help!
