Abstract

[ger] Die verallgemeinerte Momentenmethode und ihre theoretischen und anwendungsbezogenen Erweiterungen in . der Gesamtwirtschaft . von Patrick Fève, François Langot . Ziel dieses Artikels ist es, die wichtigsten theoretischen Ergebnisse der verallgemeinerten Momentenmethode aufzuzeigen. Zunâchst werden die Grundsâtze, die statistischen Merkmale und verschiedene Veranschaulichungen des Schâtzers der verallgemeinerten Momentenmethode diskutiert. Danach prâsentieren wir die einzelnen Methoden zur Berechnung der Kovarianzmatrix. Eine Reihe von Spezifizierungstests und mehrere praktische Hinweise werden anschlieBend dargelegt. Gepriift werden auBerdem verschiedene Môglichkeiten fur Erweiterungen dieser Méthode. SchlieBlich wird die Anwendung einer solchen Méthode veranschaulicht, indem wir die Schâtzung der strukturellen Parameter eines Preismodells fur Vermôgenswerte mit Anwendung auf den Konsum untersuchen. [eng] The Generalized Method of Moments. Theoretical Extensions and Macroeconomic Applications . by Patrick Fève and François Langot . The purpose of this paper is to present the main theoretical results obtained when using the Generalized Method of Moments. Principles, statistical properties and various illustrations of the estimator of this method are discussed. Then covariance matrix computation methods are explained and various specification tests examined. A number of extensions of this method are also studied. Lastly, the use of such a method is illustrated by empirically applying it to the estimation of the structural parameters of a Consumption Based Capital Asset Pricing Model.

L'objectif de cet article est d'exposer les résultats théoriques principaux de la méthode des moments généralisés. Dans un premier temps, les principes, les propriétés statistiques et diverses illustrations de l'estimateur des moments généralisés sont discutés. Les différentes méthodes de calcul de la matrice de poids sont présentés dans un second temps. Un ensemble de tests de spécification et différentes mises en garde pratiques sont ensuite exposées. De plus, différentes voies d'extensions de cette méthode sont étudiées. Finalement, la mise en œuvre d'une telle méthode est illustrée en étudiant l'estimation des paramètres structurels d'un model de prix d'actifs appliqué à la consommation.
