-findit threg- throws up nothing so I wonder where you got your

from the Econometrica paper.
It is probably much better if you use Bruce Hansen's own Matlab/Gauss codes:

To every ω-consistent recursive class κ of formulae there correspond
recursive class signs r, such that neither v Gen r nor Neg(v Gen r)
belongs to Flg(κ) (where v is the free variable of r).
