The Form Of The Optimal Nonlinear Instrument For Multiperiod Conditional Moment Restrictions
AbstractWe present the form of the optimal instrument in a system of multiperiod conditional moment restrictions in the presence of conditional heteroskedasticity. Using Hansen s (1985, Journal of Econometrics 30, 203 228) and Hansen, Heaton, and Ogaki s (1988, Journal of the American Statistical Association 83, 863 871) work on efficiency bounds for generalized method of moments estimators, we show that this form is an autoregressive recurrence parametrized by a few auxiliary processes that are defined through a system of nonlinear stochastic restrictions, with a stability condition among them. In general, the system does not allow inversion and obtaining an explicit solution for the auxiliary parameters.This is a part of my Ph.D. dissertation (Anatolyev, 2000).
