E.g., income if independently measured, proxies of long-term income or wealth are other candidates. Use of instrumental variables leads to a small fall in the estimated elasticity. Fall is not suffi- cient to place the estimated elasticity in the ‘revisionist’ camp (e.g. Subra- manian and Deaton, 1998 paper, which the class is based on).
