Taking the first coefficient separately and collecting terms, plim β 1 = β 1 [ σ 11 σ 22 q 11 q 22 -( σ 12 q 12 ) 2 ]/ Δ + β 2 [ σ 11 q 22 σ 12 q 12 + σ 12 q 12 σ 11 q 22 ]/ Δ + β 3 [ σ 11 q 22 σ 12 q 13 + σ 12 q 12 σ 11 q 23 ]/ Δ The first term in brackets equals Δ while the second equals 0. That leaves plim β 1 = β 1 - β 3 [ σ 11 σ 12 ( q 22 q 13 - q 12 q 23 )]/ Δ which is not equal to β 1 . There are two special cases worthy of note, though. The right hand side does equal β 1 if either (1) σ 12 = 0; the regressions are actually unrelated, or (2) q 12 = q 13 = 0; the regressors in the two equations are uncorrelated. The second of these is similar to our finding for omitted variables in the classical regression model. ± 6. The model is y y 0 ix0 0i 1 2 1 2 1 2 = + α β α ε ε . The GLS estimator of the full coefficient vector, θ , is () θ = ⎟ + + σ σ 11 22 1 11 1 1 12 2 2 12 1 22 2 nn x nx n x n ny x'x x'y σ σ 12 12 . Let q xx equal x x / n , q x 1 = x y 1 / n and, q x 2 = x y 2 / n . The n s in the inverse and in the vector cancel. Also, as suggested, we assume that x = 0. As in the previous exercise, we replace elements of the inverse with elements from the original matrix and cancel the determinant which multiplies the matrix (after inversion) and divides the vector.
