Estimating expenditure impacts without expenditure data using asset proxies

Martin Wittenberg ()

Economics Letters, 2011, vol. 110, issue 2, 122-125

Abstract: When asset indices are used in regressions the coefficients obtained are typically difficult to interpret. We show how lower bounds on expenditure effects can be extracted, if the relationship between the assets and expenditure can be calibrated on an auxiliary data set.
