Thanks again Marteen. I totally agree with the explanation of the
theoretical concept that must be introduced in my paper.
Anyway in terms of operationalization, I probably wasn't clear in my
first message: 1) I used yearly dummy variables to estimate the model
and I then Test for their equality: isn't it  main effects of time
(captured by that dunnies) and no interaction case. ") i agree with
the no main effects.
