Hi Maarten, i think Natasha's question is related the selection between time
dummies and time trend when she deal with panel data. Please criticize my
following expression: 

My understaing is the time dummies fix all time-variant effects and
indirectly earse the common stochastic trend for non-stationary panels,
while the time trend captures the long-term tendency. However, the time
trend is only applicable under the stationary panel while the time dummies
are applicable for both staionary and non-stationary panel. Am i right?
