On Optimal Instrumental Variables Estimation of Stationary Time Series Models
NBER Technical Working Paper No. 249
In many time series models, an infinite number of moments can be used for estimation in a large sample. I supply a technically undemanding proof of a condition for optimal instrumental variables use of such moments in a parametric model. I also illustrate application of the condition in estimation of a linear model with a conditionally heteroskedastic disturbance.
