A Monte Carlo Study of Tests of Blockwise Weak Separability
Separability assumptions on functional structure have received a great deal of attention from econometricians and economic theorists because (1) separability provides the fundamental linkage between aggregation over goods and the maximization principles in economic theory, (2) separability provides the theoretical basis for partitioning the economy's structure into sectors and (3) separability provides a theoretical hypothesis, which can produce parameter restrictions, permitting great simplification in estimation of large demand systems. The power of the various available tests for separability has never been determined, however. We conduct Monte Carlo studies to examine the capability of currently available methods to provide correct inferences about separability.
