Forecasting Errors: Yet More Problems for Identification?
Bruno Contini ()
No 4035, IZA Discussion Papers from Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA)

Any attempt of estimating choice models under uncertainty may lead to severely biased results in the presence of forecasting errors even when individual expectations on future events are observed together with the standard outcome variables.
