Abstract [en]

This paper examines the asymptotic properties of the Wald statistic in vector autoregressions that may have unit roots. Within this framework, we extend the distribution theory of Sims, Stock and Watson (1990) to nonlinear restrictions. It is shown that the limiting distribution of the Wald statistic is nonstandard when the restrictions concern the constant term or constrain the cointegration or common trends spaces. To exemplify the procedure, we study constraints derived from linear(ized) rational expectations models, i.e. nonlinear cross equation restrictions. A Monte Carlo study is performed and we find that the test statistic is somewhat oversized in small samples.
