Ignore the first part of the question, I made a typo when writing out
instruments, it works perfectly now, sorry.

The question on lincom is still valid though :)

Dear Professor Baum,

Thanks a lot for the answer.

First, in the original specification (unrestricted), I get the following
F.gnd = .5361618
L.gnd = .4614466

(they are all significant), so they already sum up to approximately one.

Then, when I try to restrict it by using the approach you have shown (D.gnd
on the left hand side and F.gnd-L.gnd on the right hand side), I get
a coefficient FLgnd = .4480393 (significant)

Isn't this a bit off? I mean, it drops from .53 to .44 even though the
unrestricted model's coefficients almost sum up to one.

Besides that, I couldn't manage to use lincom to get the coeff on L.gnd,
however, shouldnt 1-(FLgnd's coefficient) should be enough to get it?

Thanks a lot

ivreg2 D.gnd dum11 dum22 dum33 mc (FLgnd = L(1/4).gnd etc.

where FLgnd = F.gnd - L.gnd

Works the same way as imposing CRTS algebraically on a two-factor production
fn. The
coefficient on FLgnd is the coefficient of F.gnd in the original eqn. lincom
can calculate the 
point and interval estimate of its complement (the coefficient of L.gnd in
the original eqn.)
