The Classical Econometric Model


  • D.S.G. Pollock



A compendium is presented of the various approaches that may be taken in deriving the estimators of the simultaneous-equations econometric model according to the principle of maximum likelihood. The structural equations of the model have the character both of a regression equation and of an errors-in-variables equation. This partly accounts for way in which the various approaches that have been followed appear to differ widely. In the process of achieving a synthesis of the methods of estimation, some elements that have been missing from the theory are supplied.
