Limit Theory For Cointegrated Systems With Moderately Integrated And Moderately Explosive Regressors

  • Magdalinos, Tassos
  • Phillips, Peter C.B.

An asymptotic theory is developed for multivariate regression in cointegrated systems whose variables are moderately integrated or moderately explosive in the sense that they have autoregressive roots of the form ρ = 1 + c /n , involving moderate deviations from unity when α null (0, 1) and c null null are constant parameters. When the data are moderately integrated in the stationary direction (with c c > 0) the limit theory is mixed normal with Cauchy-type tail behavior, and the rate of convergence is explosive, as in the case of a moderately explosive scalar autoregression (Phillips and Magdalinos, 2007, Journal of Econometrics 136, 115–130). Moreover, the limit theory applies without any distributional assumptions and for weakly dependent errors under conventional moment conditions, so an invariance principle holds, unlike the well-known case of an explosive autoregression. This theory validates inference in cointegrating regression with mildly explosive regressors. The special case in which the regressors themselves have a common explosive component is also considered.
