st: Estimate interaction effects with ivreg |

Dear All, I have estimated an OLS regression model with an interaction effect as follows Y = b_0 + b_1*A + b_2*D + b_3*A*D + X'*b_4 + u where D is a binary variable, X' are the remaining covariates and u is an error term. The interaction effect is such that corr(Y,A)<0 if D=0 and corr(Y,A)=0 if D=1. The dummy further depends on the value of some moderator variable Z, namely D_i=1 if Z_i>median(Z) and D_i=0 otherwise. Thus, the association between Y and A critically depends on the value of Z. In particular, the interaction effect follows from the notion that corr(Z,A)<0 if D=0 and corr(Y,A)=0 if D=1. Now I want to find a way to mitigate the endogeneity bias between Y and A in this model. Assuming that Z is not correlated with the error u, the above specification suggests that Z be used as partial IV for the endogenous variable A. So I think the following 2SLS model might be appropriate: ivreg Y D X' (A = (1-D)*Z U V W) where U V W are additional excluded instruments. Would this be a valid approach under the current IV theory? Thanks for your help.
