Hypothesis Testing with Efficient Method of Moments Estimation
Efficient method of moments estimation techniques include many commonly used techniques, including ordinary least squares, two- and three-stage least squares, quasi maximum likelihood, and versions of these for nonlinear environments. For models estimated by any efficient method of moments technique, the authors define analogues to the maximum likeliho od based Wald, likelihood ratio, Lagrange multiplier, and minimum chi-squared statistics. They prove the mutual asymptotic equivalence of the four in an environment that allows for disturbances that are auto correlated and heteroskedastic. They also describe a very convenient way to test a linear hypothesis in a linear model.
