Abstract: We present asymptotic and finite-sample arguments to study the spurious regression problem. This problem may be solved by introducing a lurking variable in the specification even if it is merely a proxy variable. Moreover, this approach is also valid if the lurking variable is a trending mechanism, as when the spurious regression is due to nonstationarities in the variables.
