Hi Rich and John,

thank you very much for your replies.

Usually, I would also leave the main effects in the regression. However, I want to try an approach to control for multilateral resistance in a gravity model with panel data which was suggested by Baldwin and Taglioni (2006). These authors suggest including time varying importer and exporter dummies. They do not include the main effects for this purpose.

I am not sure if you or anyone else on the list is familiar with estimating the gravity model with panel data. There is some literature about the appropriate estimation approach; however, there does not seem to be a consensus in this regard. So I would obviously appreciate any comment in this matter.

Best regards

Phil
