An Information-Theoretic Alternative to Generalized Method of Moments Estimation
While optimally weighted generalized method of moments (GAM) estimation has desirable large sample properties, its small sample performance is poor in some applications. The authors propose a computationally simple alternative, for weakly dependent data generating mechanisms, based on minimization of the Kullback-Leibler information criterion. Conditions are derived under which the large sample properties of this estimator are similar to GAM, i.e., the estimator will be consistent and asymptotically normal, with the same asymptotic covariance matrix as GAM. In addition, the authors propose overidentifying and parametric restrictions tests as alternatives to analogous GAM procedures.
