A Refinement in the Specification of Empirical Macroeconomic Models as an Extension to the EBA Procedure
AbstractRoss Levine and David Renelts (LR) paper  investigate the robustness of the relationship between growth, investment, and variables of interest using Leamers  Extreme Bounds Analysis (EBA). LR claim that few economic variables have a robust relationship with either long-run cross-country growth rates or investments share of GDP. As something resembling an extension of McAleer et al.  and Hoover and Perez , we use a battery of statistical tests to search for models that may be less subject to specification error. We conclude that there are alternative models based on LR that have better statistical properties as well as give rather different results.
