John, Thanks for clarifying. I think you still need to account for dependencies/serial correlation, but note that with 70 data points, I think you are now in the realm of large N, large T panel models. I don't think you can rely on the asymptotics that were developed for just the large N fixed (small) T case, and you would need specialized resampling methods as well, if you want to go that route (other types of robust SE estimators might be preferable): Kapetanios, G. (2008). A Bootstrap Procedure for Panel Data Sets with Many Cross-Sectional Units. Econometrics Journal, 11(2), 377-395. Hansen, C.B. (2007). Asymptotic properties of a robust variance matrix estimator for panel data when T is large.
