Abstract: imperfectiv estimates bounds using "Imperfect Instrumental Variables" (IIV) as developed by Nevo and Rosen (R.E.Stat, 2012). This allows for inference based on instrumental variable estimates, however, with weaker assumptions than instrumental exogeneity. Namely, the exogeneity assumption of typical IV estimates is replaced with an assumption about the sign of the correlation between the instrument and unobservables.
