Are "Nearly Exogenous Instruments" reliable?

Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 101, issue 1, 20-23

Abstract: We show that when instruments are nearly exogenous, the two stage least squares t-statistic unpredictably over-rejects or under-rejects the null hypothesis that the endogenous regressor is insignificant and Anderson-Rubin test over-rejects the null. We prove that in the limit these tests are no longer nuisance parameter free.
