ESTIMATION OF ECONOMETRIC MODELS WITH NONPARAMETRICALLY SPECIFIED RISK TERMS Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • This paper studies the asymptotic properties of the semiparametric estimator considered by Pagan and Ullah (1988) and Pagan and Hong (1991) for models with risk terms. We show that when the risk term is nonparametrically specified, the estimator with generated regressors suggested by Pagan and Ullah (1988) and Pagan and Hong (1991) is (Formula presented.) -consistent and has an asymptotic normal distribution. The result is then applied to analyzing risk premium for the U.S. dollar against the British pound, the French franc and the Japanese yen exchange markets for monthly data covering the period 1976:1 to 1992:8. 2001, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
