This paper compares the efficiency of system generalized method of moments (GMM) estimator and the new system GMM estimator and also assesses the potential loss of efficiency of one-step system GMM estimator and new one-step system GMM estimator compared to their respective two-step GMM estimators by computing the Kantorovich Inequality Upper Bounds (KIUB). The KIUB is computed using the weight matrices of the one-step and the two-step GMM estimators. Here, the weight matrix of two-step system GMM estimator is computed using the one-step system GMM estimator without using limiting property. Through Monte-Carlo simulation we observe that the system GMM estimator involving new initial weight matrix has a minimum loss of efficiency compared to the system GMM estimator involving conventional initial weight matrix.Pages: 105-112 | Views: 954 | Downloads: 8Download Full Article: Click Here
