On the other hand, the fixed-effects poisson you have estimated
suffers from the incidental parameters problem--
Unlike other nonlinear estimators, the Poisson does not suffer from an
incidental parameters problem. The estimates of the fixed effects will be
consistent if time -> infinity. See Cameron and Trivedi 1998, "Regression
Analysis of Count Data" p. 280-282.
In a situation where T=6, though?
