Estimating intertemporal elasticity of substitution: the case of log- linear restrictions
AbstractAre linear regression models reliable in testing whether high expected real interest rates encourage current savings and deferred consumption? Here, a Monte Carlo test shows that a linear model yields a fairly accurate estimate and small standard error, but is highly susceptible to specification bias.
