No explanations are required. 1. Consider the regression model y = β 0 + β 1 x + u , where z is a potential instrument for x . In order for z to be a valid instrument, it must be the case that x and u are uncorrelated. 2. Consider the regression model y = β 0 + β 1 x + u , where z is a potential instrument for x . In order for z to be a valid instrument, it must be the case that z and u are uncorrelated. 3. Consider the regression model y = β 0 + β 1 x + u , where z is a potential instrument for x . In order for z to be a valid instrument, it must be the case that z and x are uncorrelated. 4. Consider the regression model y = β 0 + β 1 x + u , where z is an instrument for x . If z is a valid instrument for x we replace x with z in the regression model in order to obtain a consistent estimate of β 1 . 5. Consider the regression model
