The Effect of Pseudo-exogenous Instrumental Variables on Hausman Test
This paper investigates the potential problem of ‘pseudo-exogenous’ instruments in regression models. We show that the performance of Hausman test is deteriorated when the instruments are asymptotically exogenous but endogenous in finite samples, through Monte Carlo simulations.
