Testing exact rational expectations in cointegrated vector autoregressive models

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

This paper considers the testing of restrictions implied by rational expectations hypotheses in a cointegrated vector autoregressive model for I(1) variables. If the rational expectations involve one-step-ahead observations only and the coefficients are known, an explicit parameterization of the restrictions is found, and the maximum-likelihood estimator is derived by regression and reduced rank regression. An application is given to a present value model.
