Problem Set 3 Problem 1 Suppose that Y = + e where e s N (0 T 1 ; and 6 = ± 2 I T . (1) Show that the OLS estimator is unbiased. (2) Can we still use the t-statistics by simply assuming homoscedasticity? Why or why not? (3) Derive the GLS estimator when is known. Is the GLS estimator BLUE? Why or why not? (4) Show that the OLS estimator is not BLUE. (5) If the GLS estimator is not feasible, what would be an alternative for doing t-test? Problem 2 Consider the following regression equation Y = X 1 1 + X 2 2 + X 3 3 + e; e s N (0 T 1 ; ± 2 I T ) Suppose that X 2 = 3 X 1 2 X 3 . Problem 3 Consider the following regression equation DGP: Y = X 1 1 + e; e s N (0 T 1 ; ± 2 I T ) Reg. equation: Y = X 1 1 + X 2 2 + e; e s N (0 T 1 ; ± 2 I T ) Is ^ 1 unbiased? How does adding irrelevant variable X 2 a/ect the distribution of ^ 1 in comparison with the case that X 2 is not included? Prove your answer. Problem 4 Consider the following regression equation

Prove your answer. Problem 5 Sang-Hee wants to forecast the dependent variable at time T + 1 , y T +1 by estimating the following regression equation Y = X&amp; + e; e s N (0 T &amp; 1 ; 2 I T ) (1) What is the forecasts of y T +1 ? (2) What is the nature of prediction error? Explain your answer by deriving the variance of prediction error. 1 Problem 6 Brie&amp;y explain the following notions: (1) Unit root process (2) Unit root test (3) Cointegration (4) Stationary process (5) Spurious regression Problem 7 Consider the following model y i = &amp; + e i , e i s i : i : d :N (0 ; 1) (1) Construct the log likelihood function.
