Project description

The LSDV estimator is known to be strongly biased in dynamic panels. The goal of this project is to investigate the performance of a boostrap-based bias correction for models with higher order dynamics and a vector of (endogenous) explanatory variables. Furthermore, we explore alternative ways to estimate the long-term impact. Finally, we want to apply our findings to the convergence debate.
