<> John writes how does one do single-equation estimation with in the context of a non-recursive system. Again, here is the example: Eq1: y = x1 + x2 + z Eq2: x1 = m1 + m2 + x2 + z Eq3: x2 = n1 + n2 + x1 + z Eq4: m1 = q1 + q2 + z Eq5: m2 = p1 + p2 + z The predicted value of x2 enters in Eq. 2; however, the predicted value of x1 enters in Eq. 3. So, how does one go about estimating this non-recursive model using a single-equation estimator? In the textbook example used to motivate 2SLS, we write down a demand equation and a supply equation, both of which contain Q and P along with demand shifters and supply shifters. How is that different from eq2-3? Q = b0 + b1 P + b2 Y + e P = g0 + g1 Q + g2 R + g3 T + v with Y=income, R=rainfall, T=temperature. Those who developed IV / 2SLS were able to consistently estimate these equations by limited-information (single-equation) before systems estimators were devised. For that matter LIML could be used to estimate these equations as well (in either -ivregress- or -ivreg2- from SSC).
