Investigating the asymptotic properties of import elasticity estimates

Anson Soderbery ()

Economics Letters, 2010, vol. 109, issue 2, 57-62

Abstract: Feenstra (1994) is widely implemented in international trade to estimate elasticities of substitution. Through a Monte Carlo experiment, simulated estimates suggest substantial biases due to weak instruments. However, the derivation of the elasticity of substitution drastically mitigates these biases.
