 Exogeneity and Causality

Show Summary Details


Weak exogeneity sustains conditional inference about parameters of interest without loss of information. Strong exogeneity, weak exogeneity with Granger non‐causality, sustains conditional forecasting. Super exogeneity, weak exogeneity with invariance of parameters to interventions, sustains conditional policy analyses. Concepts of causality, and estimation and inference in conditional models of unit‐root processes are considered.

Keywords: causality; conditional inference; Granger non‐causality; invariance under interventions; super exogeneity; weak exogeneity
