In other, previous papers with similar sample sizes and topic, I have
seen that they usually either go for a simple one or two way fixed
effects model or rely on simple robust SE such as White SE. However I
am aware that Stock and Watson (2008) showed that these are
inconsistent, so this option is also ruled out for my data..
